Eclipse Summit Europe 2010 Category Descriptions
Part of ESE Submission Guidelines
Eclipse 4.0 (e4)
The mission of the e4 project is to build a next generation platform for pervasive, component-based applications and tools by building on current Eclipse and OSGi technology. We want to hear e4 talks on how you're simplifying the Eclipse programming model, enabling the platform for use on emerging web-based runtime technologies and broadening participation in platform development. Tell us how you're using e4 to write plugins or to reduce bloat.
Eclipse has evolved from the desktop to other application domains as well. This year we are looking for talks that cover usage or extension of new or existing Eclipse projects in the mobile and embedded space. Topics could include embedded-related tooling, modeling, and runtimes applied to either open-source or commercial projects. We are looking for user experience reports and industry vertical solutions in interesting domains such as transportation, safety and industrial automation. Talks covering embedded applications of the Device Software Development Platform (DSDP) projects (Device Debugging, Target Management, Mobile Tools for Java, Tools for Mobile Linux, Native Application Builder, Real-Time Software Components), C/C++ Development Tools (CDT), and Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) would also fit well in this category.
This category is focused on topics related to the range of Eclipse Modeling Project technologies: Meta-modeling, domain-specific languages, textual notations and diagramming, model transformation and code generation. Submissions of particular interest will cover multiple technologies and Modeling project integration points. Of course, a range of standard talks, both introductory and advanced, on the core technologies are welcome. Here we are as well very much interested in user stories. Let us know how you are applying the various technologies, what works for you and where you were having problems.
Eclipse is rapidly evolving a wide range of runtime technologies like the basic Equinox OSGi implementation, p2 provisioning, AJAX platforms (RAP), object persistence (EclipseLink), whole SOA runtimes (Swordfish) and numerous other elements of the top-level RT project. Looking more broadly, projects such as EMF and BIRT have significant chunks of technology useful in runtime contexts. At ESE this year we want to hear about these and other technologies at Eclipse that apply in the runtime space. We want deep dives that expose the power and value of the Eclipse approach, experience reports that talk about your success in applying Equinox and the Eclipse ecosystem to runtime problems and talks that point to possible futures in this unfolding story.
Other / New & Noteworthy
Some of the best talks defy categorization. If you have a talk that does not fit into any of the other categories, submit it here. This is also the place for New & Noteworthy talks.
