EclipseCon Europe submissions advice

EclipseCon Europe submissions deadline is approaching, and I received already several advice requests. So it's time to share some hints for increasing chance of being accepted. Just a reminder before the enumeration, we are several people in the program committee, and every one of us has his opinion and his sensibility, so do not blame me if your talk is finally not accepted.

  • Read the submission FAQs 
  • Submit before August 3, 2011, you talk may be accepted early ! Early bird winners will be advertised on the website, and speakers will receive a special gift.

  • If you submit a talk about well known Eclipse Project, or a talk already presented several times, consider an original presentation format.
  • Blog about your submission to give further details and provide us some screenshots if it's worthwile. You may also receive interesting feedback.
  • Be reactive if the committee ask you details about your submission.
Hope to read you soon.

EclipseCon Europe needs you

  I have always appreciated Eclipse events, and see them as a great opportunity to meet the community. I think that from connections made over frosty beverages could emerge new ideas and durable collaborations. This year the convention in europe will celebrate 10 years of Eclipse, it's an unique chance for measuring the road we have traveled, but also to discuss about the future and new ways to explore :

But August 17 is approaching and if you dot have done it yet, it's time for a submission. To not miss accidentaly deadlines there is even a calendar you may import.

Last but not least there will be Java 7 summit organized by Oracle this year, another reason to come.
