Register for EclipseCon 2011

The schedule for EclipseCon 2011 is just about finalized now. If you haven’t already registered, I suggest you register soon before the early deadline expires.

I recently did a quick podcast with Lynn Gayowski discussing some EclipseCon 2011 related things. One thing I forgot to mention is that with all the recent announcement and interest in Eclipse Orion, there will be sessions at EclipseCon:

Enjoy and hope to see all y’all at EclipseCon 2011!

Register Early for EclipseCon 2011

If you haven’t registered already, let me remind you that EclipseCon is scheduled for March 21-24, 2011 in Santa Clara, CA and attendees that register before December 31, 2010 will qualify for the very early-bird discount price. Also, it’s nice to see some of you studious folks registering already for EclipseCon 2011!

Not convinced yet? Check out this wordle of the accepted proposals!

See you in sunny Santa Clara in late March!

Announcing the EclipseCon / OSGiDevCon 2011 Program

Just in time for the holidays, the EclipseCon 2011 Program Committee is proud to announce the program.

There were 350 submissions and of those, 131 were accepted into the program. There were tough decisions to be made given the caliber of the proposals submitted but I’m confident we chose the best program possible. If you were curious how we made the selections, our main focus was quality of the proposal, relevant technical content and speaker experience. We also paid special attention to proposals that were given at previous EclipseCon’s or Eclipse Summit Europe’s as we had access to attendee voting data to ensure we were accepting quality proposals. Also, to help with the decision making process, we allowed speakers to sell their proposal with two ignite-style audition sessions. Furthermore, I wanted to ensure we had a fresh program this year and although I love y’all, I don’t want to see the same proposals every year. On top of that, we also budgeted a very small set of proposals for relatively new eclipse.org projects which are often underrepresented at EclipseCon.

Also, unlike previous years and as an experiment, I made every program committee member go through each proposal and express their vote and thoughts. In the past, we would generally separate into special interest groups and bring forward our personal picks. While this new process took a bit longer than I like, I believe we got a better program out of it. For those of you who didn’t get any proposals selected, I’m sorry and still hope many of you can join us at EclipseCon.

In the end, I want to thank my fellow program committee members for working close to the holidays to finalize the program before the end of the year.

I hope to see everyone at conference next year!

EclipseCon 2011 Program and Final Auditions

Just to let people know the EclipseCon 2011 program will be selected by the end of this week. The EclipseCon Program Committee has just about locked down selections on tutorials and extended talks. We are working hard to finish crafting the program and selecting the standard talks. If you want to influence the Program Committee with their decisions, please comment on the 200+ standard talk submissions in the system.

On a side note, we are also holding another audition session this Wednesday.

The agenda is as follows:

  1. Ekke Gentz, Stop Writing Boring (Business App) Unit Tests
  2. Paul Beusterien, The Mobile Web and Eclipse
  3. Serge Beauchamp, Deadlocks: The beginning of the end
  4. Farooq Kamal, ZINRO – A RCP, OSGI and SPRING based framework for developing scalable client server applications
  5. Mik Kersten, Bringing open source collaboration to the masses

Please register for the audition and join the program committee in watching these excellent submissions. You may even learn something new about the Eclipse community you had no idea about! Good luck everyone!

Impressing the EclipseCon 2011 Program Committee

I’m getting impressed with the ways people are advertising their proposals this year.

First, BJ Hargrave created a little video…

Kim Moir blogged about her proposal…

If you do the math, competition is fierce. We have about 350 submissions and about 100 of those will be selected by the Program Committee! A little advertising doesn’t hurt anyone, at least it makes my job as Program Chair easier and more enjoyable :)

EclipseCon 2011 Final Audition!

We had some much fun running the EclipseCon Audition last time, why not do it again?

The final audition will be held on December 15th, you have until the 13th to apply…

To apply for an audition you need to:

1. Have submitted an EclipseCon proposal
2. Send an e-mail to audition@eclipse.org with your name and the link to your proposal

Doing an audition will definitely help your proposal get noticed by the EclipseCon Program Committee. If your proposal gets rejected and you didn’t do an audition, I don’t want to hear any complaints. At the current state, only about 30% of the proposals will get accepted so doing an audition can only help your odds.

Good luck!

EclipseCon 2011 Late Submission Policy

After the submission deadline of November 30th, we have over 300 great proposals to comb through with many coming in at the last minute (thank you for flooding my email inbox). The main goal of the EclipseCon program committee is to create a high-quality and compelling program.

To that end, the Program Committee will accept late submissions for the program. However, it is also the goal to have the program mostly selected by December 7 and finalized by December 12. Therefore late submissions are given lower priority unless they are of exceptional quality or fill a gap in the technical program.

So the bottom line is yes, you can submit late, but it gets a lower precedence.

Want to help the Program Committee with its selection process? The EclipseCon submission system allows you to comment on each proposal…

If you are really looking forward to a talk or are impressed with the speaker, please comment so you have your voice heard. The EclipseCon Program committee looks at each proposal in depth and takes comments from the community inconsideration.

Good luck!

EclipseCon 2011 Early-Bird Picks

Once again, the EclipseCon program committee had too difficult of a time picking five early-bird selections from the 100+ submissions, so we cheated and picked 6! Congratulations to the following sessions for submitted their proposal early and which have now been selected and will become part of the program:

Thank you everyone and here’s a reminder that the deadline for submissions is November 30, 2010.

Don’t let this next deadline pass you by as the Program Committee is eagerly awaiting your submissions!

EclipseCon 2011 Audition Results

Thank you to everyone who participated in the EclipseCon 2011 Auditions last week!

Congratulations to Frank Rimlinger and Anthony Juckel for winning the EclipseCon Audition Sessions. The Program Committee had a difficult time picking a winner, so we picked two! Frank’s talk, titled “Practical Mathematical Proof of Correctness” and Anthony’s talk on “High Performance Tabular Databinding” are now both marked as accepted in the EclipseCon Submissions System and will be part of the conference program announced later in December. We thank all our pariticpants very much and remind everyone that the deadline for submissions is November 30, 2010.

By the way, you can watch the sessions online now!

If you enjoyed this style of presentations, let me know and we’ll look to do something again in the future (or even at EclipseCon).
