The Call for Papers for OSGi DevCon 2011 has recently been opened!
The deadline for submissions is November 30th, 2010 (talks submitted before the 17th November have an extra chance of getting selected due to a contest). If you have never have submitted a talk to OSGi DevCon, I highly recommend you checking out the submission guidelines.
For those who don’t know, for the past 5 years OSGi DevCon has been co-located with EclipseCon. In my opinion, this partnership has been great for both communities as both have benefited from cross-pollination. Eclipse was one of the earliest adopters of OSGi and has shown that you can build an extensive platform and community by taking advantage of standard OSGi technology and modularity.
For submitters, it’s important to note that all talks about OSGi are welcome. A colleague recently pinged me if he could submit a talk on hacking Felix and of course I said yes! Just because the OSGi DevCon is co-located with EclipseCon doesn’t mean we’ll only take talks that involve Equinox. The program committee will select what it thinks are the best talks for attendees. So if you’re doing something cool with OSGi, from adopting or hacking it, please submit your talks soon!
