Eclipse Summit Europe 2008 was a great success, but it's over so we're not taking registrations any more. This page remains on the website to document the registration policies.


Alumni -- If you have attended a previous Eclipse Summit Europe or EclipseCon, you qualify for an automatic 15% alumni discount. Welcome back! Eclipse Members and Committers -- Eclipse members qualify for a 15% thanks-for-being-
a-member discount code. To utilize your discount code, please follow the appropriate instructions: (a) for Eclipse members, (b) for committers.
Sponsors -- Each sponsor receives two free registrations as part of the sponsorship package. These free registrations are provided through discount codes. Please follow the instructions for sponsors regarding your code.

Sponsors are, of course, welcome to bring more than two people to the Eclipse Summit Europe, but the third, fourth, and so on must register and pay as normal conference attendees.

Session Presenters -- Session presenters are given free and discounted registrations via discount codes. Please follow the instructions for presenters to retrieve and use your code. Press & Analysts -- Pre-qualified press & analysts are provided free conference registration. Contact us for details.
Only one discount per person (we'll give you the maximum discount possible).
Discount registrations (except the automatic alumni discount) are provided through discount codes. Please wait for your discount code before registering; please do not register until you have received your discount code.


Payment Policies

Eclipse Summit Europe 2008 accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, checks, wire transfers, and purchase orders.

Payments Received

Registrations are not active and your attendance guaranteed until the funds are received by the Eclipse Foundation.

With credit card registrations, we receive the funds immediately so your registration becomes active immediately. With wire transfer registrations, some banks are quicker than others, although in general wire transfers are a prompt way for us to receive the funds. With purchase orders, please make sure that your company pays the purchase order promptly because we cannot activate your registration until we have received the funds (the check). Note that the extra paperwork involved with purchase orders (on your company's side) may cause significant delay in activating your registration.

If paying by check, the check must be received in the Eclipse Portland office by November 10th. After that point, you must bring the check to the registration desk onsite in order for your registration to be released.

Eclipse Member

A member is an Eclipse member as per the Eclipse Bylaws. The short version is that a member is an employee of an Eclipse member company. A mostly up-to-date list of the member companies is available on the Eclipse website. If you are not sure if your employer is an Eclipse member, please feel free to ask us. If you would like your company to become a member, please have the appropriate DMP (decision-making person) contact the Eclipse Foundation. There are many benefits of membership including discounted registration to Eclipse Summit Europe and EclipseCon.

Eclipse Committer

A committer is developer on an Eclipse project who has commit rights to the corresponding CVS repository. If you don't know if you are a committer, then you are not a committer. All committers have unix accounts on, so if you don't have an account there, then you are not a committer. If you would like to become a committer, the best way to start is to contact the project lead of an interesting project -- committers are elected by their peers based on the quantity and quality of their contributions to an Eclipse project. It's a role to be proud of, and it's a honor not given lightly.


Because the Eclipse Foundation incurs certain expenses prior to the conference, it is necessary to impose the following cancellation policy:

All cancellations must be received in writing or by email. If received before November 1, 2008, a $50 processing fee will be incurred. No refund of any kind, for any reason (including medical emergencies) will be given for cancellation requests received after November 1, 2008. Substitutions from the same organization are welcome at no additional fee. No-shows are liable for the entire conference fee.

Eclipse Foundation reserves the right to cancel the event or substitute speakers. In the unlikely event that the Eclipse Foundation should have to cancel Eclipse Summit Europe 2008, conference attendees will be refunded for the amount paid for the conference, but the Eclipse Foundation is not responsible for any attendee's other related expenses, including hotel and travel. Refunds will be issued within 15 business days after the scheduled conclusion of the conference.

Mail written cancellations to:
Eclipse Summit Europe 2008
c/o Meeting Strategies Worldwide, Inc.
6220 NE Glisan
Portland, OR 97213

Or fax to: 503.261.0964
Or email to: Eclipse Summit Europe 2008

Sorry, but the Eclipse Foundation cannot, and does not, make exceptions to these policies.
