Call for Papers
The final submission deadline has been extended to Thursday, December 3.
Welcome to the EclipseCon North America 2016 call for papers!
EclipseCon 2016 NA will be held March 7 – 10, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia, a few minutes outside Washington, D.C.
The EclipseCon NA program committee is now accepting speaking proposals for the conference. Do you have something inspiring, innovative, educational, or just plain interesting to present? Then we want to hear from you!
EclipseCon is about sharing best practices, insights, case studies, and innovations in the Eclipse community and in the wider world of software development. We want attendees to be educated and inspired after each talk. We love talks about new ways of using Eclipse technology, new ways to be a better software developer, or an introduction to a new open source project. Less inspiring are talks about a new Eclipse project release that most attendees can read in a new-and-noteworthy document.
We especially want to hear from new speakers. If you have never presented at EclipseCon, don’t be shy. Lets us know what you and your organization are doing with Eclipse. Learning from our users and adopters is an important part of making EclipseCon a great event.
To contact the program committee, send us email.
Early-bird submission deadline: November 16, 2015, 11:59 PM ET
Final submission deadline: December 3, 2015, 11:59 PM ET
Below are the tracks for 2016. When submitting, you will choose one of these. If you aren’t sure what track is the best fit, just take a best guess and the program committee may change it later.
- Eclipse Platform / RCP / Runtimes – talks about the Eclipse Platform, Eclipse RCP, e4, OSGi, Eclipse RT, etc., and covering case studies, best practices, or the future of these technologies
- Web / Mobile / Cloud Development – talks about cloud development environments, web frameworks, experience in implementing web or mobile applications or related topics; this track will also cover tools for containerized apps, platforms as a service, and Big Data
- Modeling – talks about Eclipse modeling technologies as well as domain-specific languages, with a focus on recent advances and industrial experience
- Methodology and Devops – talks on tools and methodology that are used throughout the software development process: application lifecycle management (ALM), continuous integration and continuous deployment, quality assurance, etc.
- Embedded – talks about technology in the embedded environment: debugging tools, open hardware, constrained software development, and electronics systems and design
- Science – talks about the tools on a scientific workbench, or about performing data analysis, visualization, or modeling in a scientific field; any science-related topic is welcome
- Other Cool Stuff – other interesting things that you think developers need to learn, such as usability, community building, or legal issues – you decide what you think is cool!
Theme Day Tracks
- Java 9 Day Java 9 will be released in September 2016. Proposed talks might include presentations of new features, experience reports with early access releases, or progress reports about support for existing tooling.
- IoT Day The IoT Day features talks on building IoT solutions. Proposed talks might include experience reports on using Eclipse IoT projects, best practices on IoT security, architecture and scalability, innovations in open hardware and networking, new ideas for IoT open source projects and other topics of interest to IoT technologists.
- IDE Day This day includes talks about new development tool projects at Eclipse like Orion, Che, and Flux, but also other efforts to develop next generation IDEs. Talks about other IDEs on the market (Netbeans, IntelliJ, Visual Studio, etc.) are also welcome.
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.
