Eclipse Hot New Products Showcase
The Eclipse Hot New Products Showcase is Wednesday, March 23, 5:50 – 7:30pm. Reception attendees will watch demos of new products from participating organizations, and vote for their favourite. The winning organization will receive a prize and designation as the winner of the first ever Eclipse Hot New Products Showcase.
Any company, open source project or individual that has introduced a new Eclipse-based product in the last 12 months is welcomed to participate in the Showcase. The product can be applicable to any market or industry. There are lots of great examples of Eclipse-based products in the mobile industry, cloud market, biometric research, financial industry, advanced research, healthcare and many more. This is your chance to showcase your new product.
- Your product must be brand new (not a "new version") since March 1, 2010. It must be publicly available. Your product can be production, alpha, or beta quality, but it has to be available to the public (closed betas and products not yet available do not qualify). It can be a free or commercial product.
- Organizations must be members of the Eclipse Foundation, an exhibitor at EclipseCon, or have made a contribution to the Friends of Eclipse program (you decide how big, and we’re on the honor system).
- Your product must be based on Eclipse, or plug in to Eclipse
- Each organization may demo only one new product.
How to Participate
- Contact email@example.com with a link to your new product (or details if it is yet to be released) to see if it qualifies. Once we confirm space is available, we will need:
- Organization, product name, and a 25-word (maximum) product description
- A 120px-wide logo of your organization or product
- A high-res vector graphics version of your organization or product logo
- URL to where your product is (or will be) available to the public
- Description of your planned demo setup (for example, "laptop" or "PC + 30-inch monitor")
- Contact name and contact cell phone number
- All staff working the demo (and thus attending the reception) must be registered for EclipseCon 2011 with an All Access Pass or an Exhibits Only pass (for details, see our registration page). There are no exceptions, so please register in advance!
- Your demo setup includes a cloth-covered table and access to power and wireless Internet. While historically our WiFi performance has been good, demo participants should be prepared for the WiFi to be less than perfect.
- You may include literature at your table, but there can be no free-standing signs or other objects placed on the floor.
- Due to timing and shipping constraints, we ask that you not offer trinket give-aways during the reception, nor will you be able to scan attendee badges. If you want to collect business cards or ballots and ship a prize to a winner after the conference, that’s fine.
- The reception room will be open at 5pm to allow for setup.
- For security reasons, you must be wearing your EclipseCon badge when entering the demo room for setup and during the reception. Please pick up your badge from the EclipseCon registration desk, located in the Magnolia Room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
- There is no storage or shipping available. All demo items (laptops, computers, monitors, literature, etc.) must be personally carried by your staff into the reception between 5pm and 5:50pm, and personally carried out of the reception at 7:30pm.
