The EclipseCon 2011 Program Committee is happy to announce that the Call for Papers is open!
In the same spirit of last year, we’ll have three main categories of talks:
- Making with Eclipse – including technical commercial content, case studies, working groups, and vertically aligned projects
- Making at Eclipse – technical content that’s highly relevant to Eclipse projects, such as state-of-the-nation talks, new tools and techniques, testing and so on
- Making Community – including introspective topics and asking ourselves hard questions; how we are stewarding the longevity of Eclipse as a platform, as a community and as a Foundation
One thing different this year is that there will be no tags for you to worry about when submitting your talk, simply submit the best talks you can based on your passions (check out the submission guidelines). In terms of talk types, we’re getting rid of the lightning talks and making room for some more extended and standard talks. As a replacement to the lightning talks, we’re looking to do some “ignite-style” sessions which I’ll talk about in the future.
In the upcoming weeks, we’ll let you know about keynote speakers, some contests and new events at the upcoming EclipseCon. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me or any other members of the Program Committee.
