After further reflection, conversation, and re-reading of the submissions, the Technology PMC in its role as the EclipseCon 2006 Technology & Scripting sub-PC chooses to accept these talks:

3690 Prototyping, Automating, Exploring - Interactively Scripting Eclipse
3699 Unifying Eclipse Collaboration with Corona
3721 Dynamic Languages Toolkit
3758 EOS - Eclipse on Swing
3777 Parallel Tools Platform: Now and Future
3855 Task-focused programming with Mylar

We checked the follow characteristics of the submissions:

  • Community comments: We were disappointed at the lack of community comments on the submissions. 7/25 had one comment, the rest none. We accepted 5 of those 7 and declined 2.
  • Duplicate presentations: None of our accepted presenters have other submissions.
  • Discussion with the authors: When we had discussions with the authors, the accepted talk authors responded quickly. A few of the declined talk authors never responded to questions from the program committee which led us to assume a lack of interest on the part of the submitter.
  • PC votes: There were few PC votes either from within our sub-PC or overall.
  • Community votes: As per Bjorn's blog post, we discounted community votes that did not include comments.
  • Eclipse projects: Talks about Eclipse projects were given a slight priority.
  • Premature results: Topics that appeared premature were given a much lower priority.
