It's that special time of the year again - the JavaOne 2015 call for papers is now officially open!
JavaOne will be held October 25 - October 29 in San Francisco. You can read about the details and submit here (at the time of writing the site has some minor inconsistencies that is being fixed as we speak - generally you can trust the accuracy of the information in this post when in doubt). This year I have the privilege to lead the Java EE track again along with veteran track lead Lance Andersen. My colleagues Bruno Borges and David Delabassee will also be playing key roles in the Java EE track.
Please do consider this a personal invitation from me to submit your best ideas to one of the most prestigious gatherings of the minds for server-side Java. If you have any questions, never hesitate to get in touch. If your submission was not accepted the previous years please consider this encouragement to try to improve it and submit again.
Consider the following as inspiration for submissions to the Java EE track (the only real limits of course are your own imagination on anything in the Java EE ecosystem):
- Existing and upcoming Java EE technology JSRs and implementations
- Cool stuff that extends Java EE in new and interesting ways
- Case studies using Java EE 5, Java EE 6 or Java EE 7 (including migration from other technologies)
- Best practices and design patterns for using Java EE technologies
- Emerging trends closely relevant to the Java EE ecosystem such as HTTP 2, microservices, reactive and the like
- Insightful research, development and analysis work in server-side Java
Note that topics like IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, elasticity, multitenancy, NoSQL, Big Data, DevOps and the like should go on the cloud track instead of the Java EE track. Do make an honest effort in applying your judgement on which track to submit on. Either way, it's not a deal breaker if you don't get it exactly right - we will figure it out for you if all else fails :-).
The CFP is closed April 29, so please do start thinking about what you want to submit very soon (note that's a very short time frame - just about a month from now). That being said do take your time - quality always matters!
