Each year Sun holds two internal technical conferences that bring together all of Sun's most senior engineers (Principal Engineers, Distinguished Engineers, and Fellows) at an offsite location for two days of technical presentations and networking. The conferences alternate between a smaller and larger venue. The smaller conference (Technology@Sun) accommodates just the PEs, DEs, and Fellows. At the larger conference (Innovation@Sun) we are able to include approximately 50 other attendees from around Sun. This year, we will choose them based on the merits of their poster or demo proposals.
The deadline for submissions closed last Friday and we received a total of 227 technical proposals from around the company. The program committee will now review all proposals and decide who will be invited to attend. We are also busy planning the rest of the technical content and events for the conference, which promises to be at least as interesting and useful as prior events.
