The point here, though, is to have a list of groupings (along the lines of specific tools or technologies), rather than individual recommendations, so that those interested in a particular grouping (which might cut through all the many different tracks, sessions, hands on labs, and BOFs) will have a list of topics that they can choose from.
So, here are some preliminary lists, to get started:

Any other lists such as the above out there? Groovy? Ruby? Scala? Some specific framework, for example? Or a specific domain, such as music (the JFugue API is back again, in at least two sessions that I know of). Semantic web? Mobile devices? Java Card API? Would be good to know.
