Submissions Are Now Closed

UPDATE : The submission deadline was November 18, 2011. Thank you to everyone who submitted!

We are now ready for your EclipseCon 2012 proposals!

We need your help to create an awesome technical program. We want to hear your ideas, proposals, and suggestions for great talks. Do you have something inspiring, innovative, educational, or just plain interesting to present? Then we want to hear from you!

EclipseCon is about sharing best practices, insights, case studies, and innovations in the Eclipse community and in the wider world of software development. We want attendees to be educated and inspired after each talk.

Here are the themes for EclipseCon 2012:

  • Innovation in Eclipse Projects. Eclipse is a host for a lot of great open-source projects such as Mylyn, Orion, Equinox, and Xtext, and technologies such as modeling, runtime, application lifecycle management, embedded, and so on. Tell us what is new and what is going to change the Eclipse community – or even change the world.
  • Best Practices Using Eclipse. Lots of organizations use different Eclipse technologies to build amazing applications for enterprise, mobile, and embedded. We want to teach attendees the best way to use these technologies to build successful industry solutions. We would especially like to hear from people who have built real-life applications using Eclipse RT projects, Eclipse 4, Eclipse modeling projects, or any of the other frameworks.
  • Making Open Source and Community Real. The Eclipse community has a wealth of experience working in open-source and distributed communities. A lot of this knowledge is transferable to area like Government 2.0, open data, and large-scale development within IT shops.
  • Cool Stuff. If you have something to share that doesn't quite fit into one of the other themes, don't be shy. EclipseCon attendees are a curious bunch, always interested in learning about the next big thing. Let us know what you are doing and thinking.

EclipseCon will also include two sub-conferences: OSGi DevCon and the new Agile ALM Connect. We invite speakers to submit proposals for both these events.

  • OSGi DevCon is the place to get the latest on OSGi technologies. We want to hear about experiences from speakers who have deployed OSGi-based systems, both large- and small-scale, as well as embedded, enterprise, or desktop systems. We are also especially keen on tools and frameworks that make it easy to build, use, and deploy OSGi-based applications.

  • Agile ALM Connect is a brand-new conference that connects the latest developments around Agile and ALM to the tools that make developers and teams productive across the application lifecycle. Agile methods, open-source tools and new deployment destinations such as mobile and cloud are transforming the way that we build software. As a result, in the last few years we have witness an explosion in new tools and processes that make building and deploying software easier. Agile ALM Connect will explore and educate attendees on the new landscape for integrating tools and people to enable a new level of software development and collaboration.
