There's a Deadline

I understand that approximately a month before the conference my talk information will be extracted for the printed conference materials, and that it is my responsibility to make sure they are correct.

No Swag

I understand that technical sessions at EclipseCon are vendor-neutral, and I promise not to distribute promotional materials or collect email addresses for sales leads, etc., during my talk.

I'll Leave Time for Questions

I understand that my talks are limited to specific lengths and I promise to leave time at the end for the audience to ask questions.


All permissions and agreements herein shall be effective in perpetuity and extend and apply to the Eclipse Foundation, its contractors, sublicensed distributors, and agents.
