[dsdp-pmc] EclipseCon 2008

Hi folks,


Since I haven’t seen any traffic other than Martin, here is my proposal for our track allocations:


Tutorials (3)

  • (1) Target Management (Martin, Dave)
  • (2) eRCP/eSWT (Gorkem, Mark)
  • (3) Building a debugger on DSF and Flexible Hierarchy (Darin, Pawel)


Long Talks (4)

  • (1) Tools for Mobile Linux (Christian)
  • (2) User focused talk / panel
  • (3) User focused talk
  • (4) User focused talk


Short Talks (10)

  • What's new in Ganymede
    • (1) Target Management (Martin)
    • (2) Device Debugging (Pawel)
    • (3) eRCP (Gorkem, Mark)
    • (4) NAB (Shigeki)
  • Emerging technology
    • (5) TmL (Christian)
    • (6) VPP (Mark)
    • (7) RTSC (proposed project lead)
  • User focused talks (e.g. applications of eRCP, TM, NAB, OSGi in embedded, etc.)
    • (8) User focused talk
    • (9) User focused talk
    • (10) User focused talk


I am trying to leave room for submissions that aren’t specifically DSDP, but are in the embedded/mobile space.  VPP and RTSC are newly proposed projects (only one has been officially announced).

Yes, that’s an interesting idea.  One of the things the PC suggested was creative ways to use short talk slots, e.g.

-          4 talks and a 10-minute Q&A or Panel

-          5 speakers on the same theme (time limits and delineation will be enforced)

-          Speedy demos


A what’s new in Ganymede would be very interesting.  I see TM, DD, NAB, and eRCP as potential speakers. (Get on the train!!)  It would draw collective attention to the projects in DSDP.


A what’s new in DSDP would be interesting, too.  TmL, VPP, and the (revived) MTJ could cover that.

Hi Doug,


given the allocation of slots, I first thought about

doing a "Whats new in Target Management"

short talk.


But then it struck me that it would be even more

valuable to have a single combined "What's new

in Ganymede" talk where each project has a

short slot to talk about news. I guess this could

even be a plenary session.


What do you think, would it worth bringing that

idea forward to the organizing committee?


Depending on how things go forward with TCF,

that might also be worth a slot; but it's hard to

decide right now.

Hi folks,


Sorry for not being in touch on our next meeting.  EclipseCon and my upcoming commercial release are taking a lot of time.  I also have 4 weeks of travel coming up, so I’d like to wait until October for our next meeting. 


That being said, it’s time to start working on EclipseCon 08.  I’d like to do this over email the next couple of weeks.  I am again responsible for the Mobile/Embedded Category, which has the following allocation:


4 Long Talks

10 Short Talks

3 Tutorials (2 hour slots – can be combined if desired)


As you can see, the Program Committee is pushing for more short talks this year to get better exposure and diversity of topics.  Short talk speakers will receive a 20% discount (new this year.)  The PC has also done away with separate Panel and Demo allocations, since many of the Panels weren’t very interesting.  If we really want to do a Panel, though, we should discuss.  Demo allocations can either be long or short talks.  It’s up to us.


What I need from you:


·         Would your project like a talk slot?

·         Long, short, or tutorial?

·         Do you know of folks outside our projects that would be interested in speaking?  We should recruit beyond DSDP.

·         Do you want to see a panel discussion?  On what topic?


Please respond by 9/21 (1 week).  Then we can discuss further.
