JavaOne 2010 Call for Papers
The JavaOne organisers have announced that the Call for Papers deadline for JavaOne 2010 will be the 14th of March. This year's JavaOne conference, taking place from the 19th to the 23rd of September, 2010 in San Francisco, will be the first since Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems and will be held at the same time as the larger Oracle OpenWorld 2010.
According to the organisers, "the conference curriculum is going back to its roots – 100% Java technology and related ecosystem" and so submissions should fall under one of the following seven tracks:
- Java Platform
- Java SE and Desktop Java
- Java EE and Java for Enterprise Applications
- JavaFX and Rich User Experience
- Java ME and Mobile
- Java for devices, smart cards and TV
- Java Frontier, a "pioneers" track for "cool stuff"
Attendees interested in submitting a proposal are advised to do so as soon as possible. Those selected as JavaOne conference speakers will receive a full conference pass.
JavaOne is the largest conference for Java developers worldwide. It was first held in 1996 and has, at times, attracted around 20,000 visitors. By comparison, last year's Oracle Open World had more than 40,000 visitors.
