How do I register?
The simple answer is that you click on the "REGISTER NOW" button on the Registration page. Please read the information on that page before registering, especially the part about discounts. For details about each type of discount, please read the section that corresponds to your discount on this FAQs page.
Once you have clicked on the button and have accessed the registration form, enter your email address and select a registrant type. Complete your registration by following the prompts. If you have a coupon code, enter that on the payment page.
What are the registration fees?
Registration fees vary; please see the fee table on the Registration page.
Do I need to pre-register for the sessions I want to attend?
Yes and no!
The "yes" part: pre-registration is required for all tutorials. Space is limited; pre-registration for tutorials opens after the program is announced.
- All tutorials. are on Tuesday, October 23
- Tutorials are 9:00 - 12:00
- You may sign up for one tutorial.
The "no" part: for the standard talks on Tuesday afternoon through Thursday, no pre-registration is required.
What payment methods can I use?
EclipseCon accepts payments via Visa and MasterCard or wire transfer.
What currency does EclipseCon Europe accept?
All payments must be made in euros.
How do I pay via wire transfer?
To pay by wire transfer, please begin your registration in our online registration system. When you get to the payment page, please indicate you plan to pay via wire transfer and your registration will be held in pending status until we receive payment (see the next question for more information).
We strongly encourage you to pay by credit card if possible so that your registration is activated immediately.
Who gets a discount on registration?
Lots of people get discounts: Eclipse members, Eclipse committers, EclipseCon alumni, press, students, non-corporate attendees, speakers, and sponsors. For more information on discounts, see the Registration page and the Speaker FAQs, or read below. Please note that different types of discounts may not be combined.
Do you have group discounts?
We can offer discounts to groups of five (5) or more people from the same organization. The larger the group, the bigger the discount (up to a point!). Please note that group discounts cannot be applied retroactively and can not be combined with other discounts, such as member, speaker, etc. Only registrants not receiving another type of discount "count" toward the group discount. Please email us for more information on group discounts or visit the Registration page.
How do I register with a sponsor discount?
If you're a sponsor, we love you, and we prove it by sending you regular emails. We will send you an email with information about how to register with your discount code. If you're reading this and it is past early September and you don't recall seeing the email, please email us. If you plan to register with a sponsor discount, please do NOT register until you have your discount code.
How do I register with a speaker discount?
Speaker discounts are implemented with promotion codes. If you join the hallowed ranks of accepted speakers and qualify for the discount, your code will be included in the "accept" auto-email that you receive after the program is chosen. Please note that to register with a speaker discount, you must be the first speaker on a standard talk. For more on this topic, please see the Speaker FAQs. If you plan to register with a speaker discount, please do NOT register until you have your discount code.
How do I register with a non-corporate discount?
We know that not everyone has their registration fees paid by their employers. For those of you who come to EclipseCon and pay your own fees, we are able to offer a non-corporate discount. Please email us for more information.
How do I register with a student discount?
A limited number of discounted passes are available for college and university students. To ask for a student discount, please email us.
How do I register with a press or analyst discount?
We offer free registration to pre-qualified press and analysts. Please email us for more information and pre-qualification.
How do I know if I am an Eclipse member, and how do I register with a member discount?
A person is an Eclipse member as per the Eclipse Bylaws. The short version is that a member is an employee of an Eclipse member company. A mostly up-to-date list of the member companies is available on the Eclipse website. If you are not sure if your employer is an Eclipse member, please feel free to ask us. If you would like your company to become a member, please have the appropriate DMP (decision-making person) contact the Eclipse Foundation. There are many benefits of membership including discounted registration to EclipseCon.
Register as a member by entering the discount code MEMBER in the discount code box on the registration page.
How do I know if I am an Eclipse committer, and how do I register with a committer discount?
We're pretty sure you know if you are an Eclipse committer. But we'll give you the official answer anyway. A committer is developer on an Eclipse project who has commit rights to the corresponding eclipse.org code repository. All committers have unix accounts on dev.eclipse.org, so if you don't have an account there, then you are not a committer. If you would like to become a committer, the best way to start is to contact the project lead of an interesting project; committers are elected by their peers based on the quantity and quality of their contributions to an Eclipse project. It's a role to be proud of, and an honor not given lightly.
Register as a committer by entering the discount code COMMITTER in the discount code box on the registration page. (And don't you feel proud to be a committer after that description of your role?)
If you have attended EclipseCon Europe, EclipseCon North America, Eclipse Converge, or EclipseCon Europe in the past, welcome back! Register by entering the discount code ALUMNI in the discount code box on the registration page.
How can I cancel my registration if my plans change?
Please email us to cancel your registration. If received by September 21, 2018, we will cancel your registration and charge you €50 for a processing fee. No refund of any kind, for any reason (including medical emergencies), will be given for cancellation requests received on or after September 21, 2018. No-shows are liable for the entire conference fee. In the unlikely event that EclipseCon Europe 2018 is cancelled, paid attendees will be refunded for the amount paid for the conference, but the conference organizers are not responsible for any attendee's other related expenses, including hotel and travel.
Can I transfer my registration to another person?
If you register and then are unable to attend, you may transfer your registration to another person.
Please email us to substitute another person. Please try to transfer your registration no later than October 15 if possible.
Is there a way to add a discount code after I completed my registration?
If you completed your registration, but forgot to enter a discount code on the payment page, please email us and we will add the discount code to your registration.
How can I get a copy of my registration invoice?
Once you have registered, you will receive two emails. The first is your confirmation email that summarizes your selections and fees. The second email contains your receipt. **Important: You may have to check your junk or spam folder for the emails.** In the event you did not receive both emails, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I access my registration record after my initial registration?
