Plan to arrive a day early and join us for the Unconference at the EclipseCon Europe venue.

The Unconference is designed to provide the types of networking, activities, and casual interaction that is ideal for Eclipse Working Groups and similar initiatives that bring many different people and organizations together.

The Unconference includes

  • Workshops
  • Brainstorming sessions
  • Live coding sessions
  • Poster session

The Unconference principles are simple!

  • Participants create the agenda by bringing their community or team together
  • No presentations or talk tracks (that format is reserved for the conference)

The schedule is also simple, and sessions are synchronized to make it easy to move from one to another:

  • A short welcome session for all attendees to start the day
  • Two sessions of 1.5 hours in the morning
  • Lunch and Poster Session for all
  • Two sessions of 1.5 hours in the afternoon

Unconference participants form the agenda by bringing their communities together. We use a page on the Wiki as our live planning doc. Let everyone know what you would like to talk about, learn about, or share by adding it to the Unconference wiki page. You can also edit the wiki to suggest a session, comment on a session proposal, or indicate your interest in a topic.

Registration is required to attend the Unconference. The fee is €50 plus VAT and includes coffee breaks and lunch. If you are registering for the full conference, choose the Unconference as an additional item when you register. If you are attending the Unconference by itself, choose "Unconference only" when registering. To register, see the conference registration page.
