Call for Papers

Submissions are now closed. You can see the selected program here.

Last year's conference was a great success, and we are looking forward to another event with current ideas, more talks, longer workshops for in-depth learning, and lots of social networking (click here to see what's new). We need you to make this happen! Please submit a talk if you have a great story to tell on any of the topics below.

Talk Tracks

The topics are grouped into two general categories: Systems Engineering and Working Groups and the Eclipse Ecosystem.

Systems Engineering and Working Groups

EclipseCon France has become the best place for Eclipse Working Groups to meet and collaborate, so we are especially interested in proposals in the following areas.

  • PolarSys When key industrial actors from aerospace, defense and security, energy, medical equipment, telecommunications, transportation and more join their efforts in an industry working group to support the development of industrial-grade tools and processes for complex and embedded systems, they address many challenges: productivity, reliability, safety, service, and performance. Whether you're already involved or would like to be, please share with us your related Eclipse experience.
  • Embedded & IoT For hardware modeling of managing a cluster of devices, what are the challenges brought by IoT? What low-level issues are you facing in power consumption, security, scalability? When it comes to application development, which technologies, tools or protocols come to the rescue when your target is a "thing"? Please share with us how you can make great stuff with your devices and how Eclipse has helped you to develop your embedded applications.
  • Science & LocationTech If you are working in scientific computing, using location-aware technologies, developing tools or making sense of data, then this is your track! Come and tell us about your work with research, machine learning, high performance computing, analysis, visualization or any science or geospatial topic. We welcome talks from both industry and the academic world.
  • Eclipse in Other Industries If you apply Eclipse or Eclipse-based technologies to your very specific other domain (automotive, chemical, financial), then choose this track to propose a case study or lessons learned talk.

The Eclipse Ecosystem

Even though EclipseCon France emphasizes specific technical areas, it is also a place for the entire Eclipse community to meet and discover established and new technologies. We invite you to submit presentations on these topics.

  • Modern Applications & Technologies Are you developing applications, leveraging new web or mobile features, targeting wearable devices, or facing scalability, security, and privacy issues? Which front-end framework and back-end technology are you using, and how are you integrating them? Share how the Eclipse ecosystem interacts with current and ongoing application technologies.
  • Cloud & DevOps Tell us the story of your application from idea to delivery, and share your efficient development pipeline and tools. Are you doing devops with home-made infrastructure or whatever-as-a-service, using Docker or VM, or provisioning with Puppet or Chef? Tell us how Eclipse projects have helped you with these topics.
  • Eclipse Technologies & Community Submit in this track if you want to showcase popular or up-and-coming Eclipse frameworks, technologies and projects, such as RCP, modeling, e4, language tools, collaboration tools, or web IDEs. You can also use this track to share some best practices and new tools for the Eclipse community (simultaneous release, automated error reporting, infrastructure, and so on.)
  • Other Cool Stuff Did we miss a topic that you want to talk about? Don't worry, there's still room for proposing it in this track! We are looking for talks about user experience, software quality, gamification, and so on. Any interesting topic is welcome!

If you aren't sure which category is the best fit for your submission, just take a guess and the program committee may change it later. There's no "wrong" type of submission and we want the conference to be appealing to a large audience. If you think your topic is interesting, there's a good chance the program committee will too!

Talk Types

The two talk types are

  • Standard (35 minutes)
  • Workshop (3 hours)

We plan to have Ignite Talks, which are usually modified versions of standard talk submissions; the program committee will contact submitters about these.

New for 2016!

EclipseCon France has expanded, and now covers three-plus days.

Attendees may register for Tuesday only, Wednesday and Thursday only, or all three days. The Unconference may be added to any registration, or chosen as a single option. (More information will be here when registration opens.)


For more about what's new for 2016, read this post from Mickael Istria, program chair.


Important Dates

  • January 26, 2016: submissions open
  • March 18, 2016: early-bird submission deadline
  • April 4, 2016, 23:59 CET: submissions close

Important Information for Speakers

We have designed EclipseCon France to maximize the opportunity to meet other attendees, visit the sponsors, and get updated on what the community is doing. The program organization is simple. All talks are 35 minutes long, scheduled into 45-minute time slots. All workshops are three hours long, and offered on one day. Please note that the conference language is English.

We strongly encourage the actual speaker to submit the proposal. Sometimes a third party will submit on a speaker’s behalf. Typically such proposals are not accepted. We want speakers who are engaged and really want to speak at the conference. The program committee will review all proposals, but proposals submitted by third parties will be given lower priority.

Not all speakers receive discounts. For workshops, the first and second speakers listed on the talk receive a free pass. For standard talks, the first speaker on the talk gets a pass. We are not able to give passes to Ignite Talk speakers.

Before submitting, please read the Submission FAQS and the Speaker FAQs.

Program Committee

The sessions and keynotes at EclipseCon are chosen by an independent program committee made up of volunteers from the Eclipse community. To learn more, see the Program Committee page.
