As the chair of the embedded / mobile track for EclipseCon, I
would like request the assistance of the DSDP PMC in selecting talks for the
conference. While it’s easy enough to just do this by myself, I
think it’s more effective and open if we discuss the submissions as a
group. I would also like to include Doug Schaefer in our discussions,
since CDT is typically an integral part of embedded C/C++ tools solutions (he’s
already lurking on this mailing list). He does have his own track,
though, so he’ll be able to accommodate CDT-specific talks.
Let’s discuss this in our PMC call next week. I will
try to keep the process easy and not too time consuming for you.

Subject: Submission process
You’ve probably noticed a steady trickle of submissions. If
you’ve not signed up for email notification for your track, you can now
do so within your profile settings of Eclipsezilla. It’s also
possible to just view submissions by track in the search page.
We’ll need to agree on the process for selecting submissions in our
respective tracks, given our upcoming selection deadline of November 15th for
tutorials. This process will (of course) need to be open and transparent,
so I recommend we simply utilize the voting feature of Eclipsezilla.
You’ll also see a Program Committee votes link on each submission
page (Eclipsezilla knows who you are). Thoughts?
You’re welcome to work with however many colleagues you’d like to
help with reviewing/voting, but you are the ones ultimately responsible for the
selections within your track. To select a submission, change its status
to ACCEPTED, and likewise inform those not selected by changing status to
DECLINED. Of course, wait until after the submission deadline date to
select/reject. Those dates again are:
November 1st - Tutorial
proposals must be in.
November 15th - Tutorials chosen.
December 1st - Long Talks and Panel proposals must be in.
December 30th - Long Talks and Panels chosen.
January 15th - Short Talks and Demos proposals must be in.
January 30th - Short Talks and Demos chosen.
just a reminder that it’s still possible to juggle allocations within the
tracks. Just let us know if you need to make changes.
Thanks again for being on the Program Committee for EclipseCon 2007!
