Call for Papers

Welcome to the Call for Papers page.

Submissions are now closed (though the page is still here to share information). Thanks to everyone who proposed a talk!

EclipseCon Europe is about sharing best practices, insights, case studies, and innovations in the Eclipse community and in the wider world of software development. We want attendees to be educated and inspired after each talk, and we need your help to create a great program. We are pleased to once again co-locate with the OSGi Alliance Community Event, adding more breadth and expertise to the program.

Theme Days. This year’s conference includes three Theme Days: an IoT Day on Tuesday, 3 November, a Project Quality Day on Wednesday, 4 November, and a LocationTech Day on Thursday, 5 November. Theme Days offer a full track of content on their specific topics.

Lightning Talks. Consider submitting a lightning talk if you want to introduce a topic, find people to collaborate with, or make your new project known to the community. Depending on the number of slots, we may hold a few lightning talk slots open for onsite submissions.

Speak Easy Talks. We are partnering with Speak Easy, a program designed to increase diversity in tech conferences through dedicated conference spots, mentoring, and events. If you are a new speaker, sign up to be mentored by an experienced speaker. If you are an experienced speaker, sign up to be a mentor. See the details on the Speak Easy page.

If you have questions that aren't answered below, please see the Submission FAQs or Speaker FAQs. Still need help? Email us.

Talk Categories
  • Eclipse Technology. Eclipse is a host for a lot of great open-source projects such as Mylyn, Equinox, Xtext, the various Eclipse IDEs, and the Eclipse Platform, plus technologies such as modeling, runtime, and application lifecycle management. New tools and techniques and state-of-the-nation talks go here.
  • OSGi. The OSGi Alliance Community Event 2015 is co-located with ECE 2015. Talks related to OSGi technology and the OSGi ecosystem, including use cases and new initiatives around OSGi IoT and Cloud, should be submitted here. OSGi is deployed in large-scale distributed systems as well as small, embedded devices and applications, sustaining an ecosystem that includes operators, utilities, enterprise and embedded software vendors, and device and automotive manufacturers.
  • Web Technology and Cloud Development. If you are implementing Web / JEE applications or want to share your experience with modern web frameworks (AngularJS, Vaadin, EMF Forms for Web), your talk goes here. This is also the track for talks about cloud development tools at Eclipse (Orion, Che, Flux) or other ways to move tooling to the cloud (browser-based UIs for dev tools, next-generation IDEs).
  • Industry Solutions. There are a lot of solutions based on Eclipse technology, and we want to hear about them. Please tell us what you are doing with the cool projects provided by the Eclipse community. Your talk could show others how to use the software, or provide feedback for the project developers.
  • Introduction to the Eclipse Ecosystem. There are a lot of people out there — and at the conference — who are fairly new to the Eclipse community and projects. This is your chance to tell them about your project and bring new members into your community. Assume that attendees at these talks have limited experience with Eclipse, so provide a good overview about your topic. (Save the in-depth stuff for the other tracks.)
  • Science. This track is for you if you want to talk about the tools on your scientific workbench, or show how you perform data analysis, visualization, or modeling in your scientific field. Any science-related topic is welcome.
  • IoT Day. This Theme Day features sessions on creating applications for IoT. If you have a story to tell about using open hardware (Arduino, BeagleBone, Raspberry Pi), on using Eclipse IoT projects, or about new open source projects for IoT, then submit here.
  • Project Quality Day. Here we are looking for presentations on any topics related to quality in projects. If you’re talking about testing, analyzing, checking, or building/deploying in CI environments, then submit your talk in this track.
  • LocationTech Day. LocationTech is all about open source solutions for location-aware technologies. Here you will find talks on geospatial software, data formats, protocols, and tools, plus the latest about LocationTech projects hosted by Eclipse.
  • Other Cool Stuff. Not everything will fit easily into one of these tracks. If your talk is one that's hard to categorize, submit it here!

If you aren't sure what track is the best fit for your submission, just take a best guess and the program committee may change it later.

Talk Types
  • Standard (35 minutes)
  • Tutorial (3 hours)
  • Lightning (10 minutes)
Important Dates
  • June 1: submissions open
  • July 17: early-bird submission deadline
  • July 31: final submission deadline
Please Note

You must have an eclipse.org account and be logged in before you can submit a talk. If you have created a new eclipse.org account but are not able to log in, please confirm that you have activated the account. See this section of the Submissions FAQs for more information.

Not all speakers receive discounts. The first speaker on a standard talk and the first and second speakers on a tutorial receive a free pass. Theme Day speakers receive a free pass for the Theme Day only (or the equivalent discount off a full conference pass). Lightning talk speakers do not receive a discount.

We strongly encourage the actual speakers to submit their own proposals. We want speakers who are engaged with the community and really want to speak at the conference. Sometimes a third party will submit on a speaker’s behalf. The program committee will review all proposals, but proposals submitted by third parties will be given lower priority.
