Answer the Call

Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne + Develop Call for Papers Information

One of the best parts of Oracle OpenWorld is the chance to share your innovative ideas and practical experiences with peers, partners, and press. This year, with the combination of JavaOne + Develop, there's an even larger pool of talent to offer new ideas and best practices.

The call for papers for the JavaOne stream at JavaOne + Develop is open now. If you have a presentation that can deepen our practical knowledge of Java, is rich in technical detail, and includes demos that show how to apply Java in the real world, let us know. Take a look at the submission criteria and submit yours today.

For Oracle OpenWorld attendees, your call for papers opened Tuesday, March 2. This is the best way for you to share your best ideas, experiences, and accomplishments with the largest concentration of Oracle customers, developers, and partners in the world.

Deadline for submission to both Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne + Develop are coming up fast. For the JavaOne stream, you need to have your submission in before 11:59 p.m. PT on March 14. The Oracle OpenWorld submission deadline is one week later, March 21.

We're looking forward to seeing what you've learned since last year's show, and we're tremendously excited to include Java developers in the 2010 JavaOne + Develop event. Get your papers in soon so that you can register and start building your 2010 Oracle OpenWorld agenda.


Okay, now I'm confused. I've attended Oracle Develop for the last two years, and it has been a good experience. I learned a lot, especially since Oracle employees from the JDeveloper/ADF teams presented on their areas of expertise. So now (and this seems to be a new development) Oracle Develop has been combined with JavaOne. Yet, I don't see any topics in the call for papers that seem to invite the same kind of presentations that we've had at Oracle Develop - how to use Oracle's unique development tools, like JDeveloper, ADF, OAS, Forms, or ApEx. And the decision to combine the two conferences had not been publicized when the JavaOne call for papers was first out, so potential Oracle Develop presenters (like me, maybe) have less than two weeks to get a proposal in. Nothing against JavaOne - I've heard its a great conference. And I know that the non-Oracle-specific Java developers will be happier if they get a conference that has the same great content they are used to. But JavaOne never had very much for the typical JDeveloper/ADF user even though they are using the same underlying technologies. I am afraid Oracle Develop attendees are going to be short-changed.

John, Thanks for giving us an opportunity to clarify. We've created a JavaOne stream for this year's show. It's happening at the same time as Oracle OpenWorld, and in the same venues as the Oracle Develop sessions. However, the call for papers for the JavaOne stream is its own entity. If you have a presentation about Java technology and its related ecosystems, send it in through the JavaOne call for papers submission site before the March 14 deadline. But if you're presenting something that's more appropriate for Oracle Develop, use the Oracle OpenWorld Call for Papers submission site. We hope that helps, but if you still have questions, please let us know. Stephen
