About EclipseCon Europe
EclipseCon Europe is the Eclipse Foundation’s primary European event designed to create opportunities for the European Eclipse community to learn, explore, share and collaborate on the latest ideas and information about Eclipse and its member companies.
EclipseCon is all about community. Contributors, adopters, extenders, service providers, consumers and business and research organizations gather to share their expertise and learn from each other. EclipseCon delivers networking opportunities that lead to synergies in the community, as well as opportunities to give and receive help on specific technical issues or to generate business opportunities.
Unlike many other conferences, the sessions and keynotes at EclipseCon Europe are chosen by an independent program committee, allowing us to consistently offer a high-quality program. To contact the program committee, send us email.
The themes for talks at EclipseCon Europe change every year to include the most interesting current topics. The themes for 2013 are listed on the CFP page.
Sponsors of EclipseCon Europe have a unique opportunity to be an integral part of the entire event. The ECE 2013 conference program will include both hands-on tutorials and technical sessions on current topics pertinent to the Eclipse developer community, such as modeling, application lifecycle management, service-oriented architecture, embedded systems, and more, as well as sessions that demonstrate Eclipse-based solutions for finance, automotive, aerospace, insurance, and other domains.
Why Should You Go?
On one hand, Eclipse technology is mainstream and has become ubiquitous in the enterprise. On the other hand, Eclipse continues to spur innovation and provides a platform for research and leading-edge technology. The EclipseCon program is designed to cover both areas.
You will hear about successful industry deployments as well as highly innovative solutions in areas where you don’t expect Eclipse to be used. You will meet the experts and talk to them, network with your peers and share your experiences. You will also learn about the latest initiatives and industry working groups within the Eclipse ecosystem. You can talk to the industry experts about the Eclipse long-term support initiative, hear about Eclipse technology in safety-relevant environments (aerospace, automotive, public transport), learn more about the future of Machine-to-Machine technology, or see what we envision as the future build and management infrastructure for Eclipse projects.
Why Should You Be a Sponsor?
If your company is looking to connect with experienced developers and users of Eclipse-based and related technologies, EclipseCon Europe is the place to be. We love helping our sponsors find innovative ways to interact with the community and achieve a great return on their investment in the conference.
Why Should Your Manager Send You?
In today‘s open world, your manager needs you to relay the information about innovation and current solutions back to your organization. And as you do so, you become the innovation agent for your enterprise. EclipseCon is the ideal information and learning event!
