Nominations Open for JCP Program Awards
By Heather VanCura on Jul 21, 2011
Nominations are now open for the 9th annual JCP Program Awards. This year we will have three award categories. Please submit nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8 August 2011. All nominations must include a brief justification for the nomination. Following the nomination period, we will carry out an email ballot with the JCP Executive Committee to determine the winners of the Awards.
Winners in each category will be announced on 4 October at the Tuesday evening JCP community event held during the JavaOne 2011 conference. Winners and nominees are included permanently in the JCP program's hall of fame.
The 9th JCP Annual Awards Categories are:
- JCP Member/Participant Of The Year - This award recognizes the corporate or individual member (either Member or Participant) who has made the most significant positive impact on the community in the past year. Leadership, investment in the community, and innovation are some of the qualities that EC Members look for in voting for this award.
- Outstanding Spec Lead - The role of Spec Lead is not an easy one, and the person who takes that responsibility must be, among other things, technically savvy, able to build consensus in spite of diverse corporate goals, and focused on efficiency and execution. This award recognizes the person who has brought together these qualities the best in the past year, in leading a JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME).
- Most Innovative JSR - Innovation is key to the success of the JCP program and helps ensure we remain a fresh and vibrant community. This award recognizes the Spec Lead and Expert Group that have introduced the most innovative new JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME) in the past year.
