Registration Policies

Free Registrations and Discounts

Other Registrations

Group Discounts

For cash flow reasons (i.e., we have to pay the convention center), group discounts are only available pre-paid - purchase orders must be paid before registration codes for the discounts will be provided. Group discounts only apply to paid registrations - presenters who get free registrations do not count towards the group count total.

Group discounts may be applied retroactively, in other words, if Company X sends ten people registering normally, and then decides to send ten more people thereby qualifying for the group discount, Company X can pay the difference between what they have paid and the appropriate group discount rate, and retroactively apply the group discount to the ten who have already registered.

Contact Cija for a group discount bulk registration.

Cancellations

Because the Eclipse Foundation incurs certain expenses prior to the conference, it is necessary to impose the following cancellation policy:

All cancellations must be received in writing or by email. If received before February 1, 2007, a $50 processing fee will be incurred. No refund of any kind, for any reason (including medical emergencies) will be given for cancellation requests received after February 1, 2006. Substitutions from the same organization are welcome at no additional fee. No-shows are liable for the entire conference fee.

Eclipse Foundation reserves the right to cancel the event or substitute speakers. In the unlikely event that the Eclipse Foundation should have to cancel EclipseCon 2007, conference attendees will be refunded for the amount paid for the conference, but is not responsible for any attendees' other related expenses, including hotel and travel. Refunds will be issued within 15 business days after the scheduled conclusion of the conference.

EclipseCon 2007 c/o Meeting Strategies Worldwide, Inc.
6220 NE Glisan

Sorry, but the Eclipse Foundation cannot, and does not, make exceptions to this policy.

Presentation Policies

Presentation Materials

Presenters are encouraged and expected to make their presentation material available to the community. Presentations posted to the submission system will be automatically revealed through the EclipseCon website. Authors are welcome (even encouraged) to retain their copyright while making the material available under the Eclipse Public License or a Creative Commons license; material under other licenses will not be displayed on the EclipseCon website.
Download the PowerPoint template containing the necessary license notice, or you can add the notice to your own slide format.

Substitutions

The Program Committees select amongst submissions based on the content and the presenters, thus substituting a new presenter should only be done with the involvement of the Program Chair. The PC reserves the right to refuse a change or to remove a presentation if they feel that the substitution would change the character of the talk.

Deadlines

The Program Committees reserves the right to extend the submission deadlines for categories or individuals as necessary to gather and create the best possible conference for the attendees. All such exceptions will be publically explained and justified to preserve the open and transparent nature of the EclipseCon selection process.

Tutorial notes submission deadline is February 2, 2007.
