Program Committee

Doug GaffThe EclipseCon 2008 program is being chosen by a "virtual" program committee consisting of the program chair (Doug Gaff, Wind River) and representatives from major Eclipse projects and significant interest groups. The overall program is apportioned into categories, with each project / interest group responsible for recruiting and choosing content in its category of expertise. The program chair is responsible for the keynotes and the overall program layout. The program chair reserves the right to refactor the allocations as necessary to create the best possible conference for the attendees.


The job of the PC is to put together a program that attracts and informs the attendees. Lots of submissions in a category indicates a lot of interest in presenting on a particular topic, not necessarily a lot of interest in hearing about a topic. ... In the end, the conference is for the attendees, not the presenters. Thus the program committee will, in an effort to create a balanced and exciting program, arrange for speakers to present on particular topics. That is their job.
