Thinking about submitting a session for JavaOne 2011? That's great! Here are some tips that will help your JavaOne submission stand out:
- Write an abstract that is easy to read and describes the value of the presentation. Do explicitly mention what is being discussed during the session rather than making a blank marketing or strategy pitch. For example, include mention of demonstration, case study, customer/partner participation, quantitative facts, etc.
- Submissions should be:
- Java-related topics (not technologies such as Flex, .NET, Objective C, etc... unless it's specifically a topic about how such things INTEGRATE with Java)
- Non-product pitches (JavaOne is a technology conference!)
- Interesting/innovative uses of Java (be creative!)
- Practical relevant case studies/examples/practices/etc. (showcase your skills!)
- Presentations should offer a unique solution
The last tip is a great reminder: it's not the Java technology itself that matters, but how Java solves a problem. That should be your focus. Learn more tips by visiting the JavaOne Call For Papers website
, it has a whole page of Tips and Guidelines
While these are all good tips to make your submission stand out, the most important tip we can give is make sure to get your submissions in on time. The JavaOne 2011 Call for Papers closes on
