The call for papers for EclipseCon Europe 2017 has opened, and it is time to get your submissions in. There are some notable adaptations to the last years. First of all, we extended the Java track to "Java & JDT". Since they are closely connected the combination made sense. For the upcoming Java 9, (no matter when it will actually be released), and also for previous versions of Java, we hope for a lot of interesting submissions in this central track.
The OSGi community event in Ludwigsburg is the number one place to go if you want to learn about Java modularity and OSGi technology. I'm always thrilled to attend this great conference and the special venue. In addition to the interesting and inspiring technology sessions, it's essentially a community event where you can meet and greet like-minded developers. Especially the combination with EclipseCon Europe brings together a large and diverse community who cares about modularity and OSGi. The exchange and discussions are what makes this an invaluable event and I'm always amazed at the openness and friendliness of this community. Don't miss this opportunity.
We look forward to seeing the community for another great event in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Be sure to save these dates:
Monday, 23 October, 2017: Eclipse Unconference
Tuesday through Thursday, 24 - 26 October, 2017: EclipseCon Europe / OSGi Community Event
Submissions will open in mid-May. Follow @eclipsecon on Twitter for updates.
