Interview with Tim Verbelen by the OSGi Alliance Team
Tim Verbelen's talk, Run OSGi on your robot and teach it new tricks, is this year's early bird pick for the OSGi track. He was interviewed by the OSGi team to learn more about his talk and his robot.
....Verbelen: We have been using OSGi in our research lab for quite some time, so the most convenient way to integrate things for research/demos is to write an OSGi service for it. Currently, we are looking into how to process sensory information (e.g. LIDAR, camera, etc.) and translate this into robot control (e.g. to execute a certain task).
Preview what's in store: Early Bird Picks 2017

More on this year's tracks
by Jonas Helming
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.
Testimonial: Carsten Ziegeler, Adobe Research Switzerland
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.
It's time to submit!
The Call for Papers is open. See what the program committee is looking with this year's updated tracks. Consider participating in the theme days for IoT and Project Quality.
The early-bird deadline is June 30, with all submissions due by July 17.
