Cool embedded Java? Submit to JavaOne San Francisco!

Originally written by Terrence Barr on his blog

Have you been working on a cool application, solved a tricky embedded problem, or helped deliver an industrial-grade solution using Java?

There is a lot of great stuff happening in the embedded Java space. The world wants to hear about it.

Submit your proposal to JavaOne 2013 in San Francisco and present your work to thousands of like-minded Java developers!

The Call for Papers has been extended by a week, to April 23rd (watch the web pages for updates).


Get extra credit from me for using Java ME Embedded on Raspberry Pi. Check it out and do something fun and inspiring with it.

JavaOne 2012 Call for Papers

JavaOne 2012 is happening Sept. 30-Oct 4 in San Francisco. The Call For Papers for this conference is now open. Java Evangelist Arun Gupta, who was on one of the selection committees and will be again this year, provided some great tips for submission (and a peek into the submission process):

  1. JavaOne is a technology-focused conference so any product, marketing or seemingly marketish talk are put at the bottom of the list. Oracle Open World and Oracle Develop are better options for submitting product specific talks.
  2. Make your title catchy. Remember the attendees are more likely to read the abstract if they like the title.
  3. We try our best to recategorize the talk to a different track if it needs to but please ensure that you are filing in the right track to have all the right eyeballs looking at it. Also, it does not hurt marking an alternate track if your talk meets the criteria.
  4. Make sure to coordinate within your team before the submission - multiple sessions from the same team or company does not ensure that the best speaker is picked. In such case we rely upon your "google presence" and/or review committee's prior knowledge of the speaker.
  5. The reviewers may not know you or your product at all and you get 750 characters to pitch your idea. Make sure to use all of them, to the last 750th character.
  6. Make sure to read your abstract multiple times to ensure that you are giving all the relevant information ? Think through your presentation and see if you are leaving out any important aspects. Also look if the abstract has any redundant information that will not required by the reviewers.
  7. There are additional sections that allow you to share information about the speaker and the presentation summary. Use them to blow the horn about yourself and any other relevant details. Please don't say "call me at xxx-xxx-xxxx to find out the details." :-)

The tracks this year are:

  • Core Java Platform
  • Development Tools and Techniques
  • Emerging Langauges on the JVM
  • Enterprise Services Architectures and the Cloud
  • Java EE Web Profile and Platform Technologies
  • Java ME, Java Card, Embedded, and Devices
  • Java FX and Rich User Experiences

IMPORTANT: Submit your proposal as soon as possible, the the Call for Papers closes April 9th, a mere three weeks away!

JavaOne India CFP Ends March 15

JavaOne India is happening in Hyderabad, 3 – 4 May 2012.  It will include keynotes and technical sessions, hands-on labs and demos, and a chance to network with experts and others in the developer community. Do you want to take your skills, marketability, and connections to the next level? Submit a paper for a JavaOne India session! These aren't product pitches; your fellow developers want to hear about interesting and innovative uses of Java, practical and relevant case studies, and development best practices. All sessions are one hour long (50 minutes with 10 minutes Q & A). They can be a session, a panel discussion, or a Birds-of-a-Feather get together.

JavaOne India was a huge success last year, and 2012 promises to be even better, with your help. Here's how to submit a paper:
    1) Read Tips for Paper Submissions
    2) Write up a short abstract describing the session. Demos keep it interesting!
    3) Submit the proposal. You'll need a title, abstract, what track it should be in, and type of session. A description of the submission fields are here

JavaOne India Call For Papers Ends March 15, 2012. That's this week!
