EclipseCon 2007 and Device Software
Fewer and more technology-centric keynotes. Who can forget Joel’s hilarious opening keynote this year? We’re pleased to have Scott Adams of Dilbert fame starting us out next year. We also have open source advocate Robert Lefkowitz and security expert Dr. Herbert Thompson.
Tutorials changes on Monday. “Tutorial Monday” will provide two new choices for attendees. Long Tutorials will now be a full day in order to allow more involved hands-on programming exercises. We are also introducing Short Tutorials to provide a deep technical introduction to a topic without adding a hands-on exercise. Short Tutorials will be 2 hours long, and you will be able to pick 3 to attend.
Decentralized Program Committee. Last year the Program Committee read hundreds of submissions in order to put the technical program together. As you can imagine, this was a technically challenging and very time-consuming task for the all-volunteer committee. This year, the committee has become virtual, with track leads chairing the various technology areas of Eclipse. I am leading the Mobile / Embedded / Device Software track, and we’re looking for submissions in the following areas:
- Developers contributing to or using existing DSDP projects.
- Plug-in providers building embedded-specific products using Eclipse.
- Eclipse users with experiences to share from the various embedded verticals, such as Consumer Devices, Automotive, Industrial, Aerospace and Defense, Networking, etc.
Please also consider Doug Schaefer’s C/C++ Development track if you’re using or extending technology from the CDT project for your embedded application.
Finally, please note that submission deadlines. The Tutorial deadline is fast-approaching.
- November 1st - Tutorial proposal deadline.
- November 15th - Tutorials chosen.
- December 1st - Long Talks and Panel proposals deadline.
- December 30th - Long Talks and Panels chosen.
- January 15th - Short Talks and Demos proposals deadline.
- January 30th - Short Talks and Demos chosen.
We’re looking forward to your submissions and to another successful EclipseCon event.
