Be a Sponsor

 

 Unlike many other conferences, EclipseCon Europe and OSGi Community Event talks are chosen by a volunteer, independent program committee. This allows us to offer a current and consistently high-quality program.

The social times and hands-on activities keep the networking going and make sure that fun is an important part of the gathering.

Please join us as a sponsor or exhibitor and play a significant role in this year’s event – we need your participation to make 2018 a success!

Themes and Special Content for 2018

For a full list of program tracks, see the Call for Papers page.

The 2018 conference includes a Project Quality Day on Wednesday, 24 October. This focused content introduces new companies, presenters, and attendees to the Eclipse and OSGi ecosystems while also serving our core communities. Contact us at sponsors@eclipsecon.org for more information on being a Theme Day sponsor.

Location and Venue

The Stuttgart area is a hot spot for Germany industry (including Bosch, Daimler, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche). The region currently has Germany's highest density of scientific, academic, and research organizations, so the conference's Ludwigsburg location attracts a variety of technical professionals.

Ludwigsburg itself is charming and baroque; its most famous attraction is the beautiful Residential Palace, former home of the kings of Baden-Württemberg. The conference venue is the Forum am Schlosspark, a light-filled space in the heart of Ludwigsburg, close to restaurants, shops, and hotels. The Nestor Hotel Ludwigsburg, a few steps away from the Forum, serves as the conference hotel.
