  • Michael Würtenberger, managing director of BMW Car IT, will share thoughts about cars as mobile devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), and how the technological capabilities of a mature industry changes the way we think about and develop new products and services.
  • Stefan Ferber, vice president for portfolio strategy at Bosch, will discuss Bosch’s IoT strategy and the importance of adopting open standards and open source technology from consortia like the OSGi Alliance and Eclipse Foundation.

EclipseCon Europe is a three day event co-located with the OSGi Alliance Community Event 2015. The topics for this year’s conference include Eclipse technology, introduction to the Eclipse ecosystem, OSGi, web technology and cloud development, industry solutions, science applications, and more. In addition to the regular program, the conference also hosts two theme days:

  • IoT Day explores the exciting community that is building open source technology for the Internet of Things (IoT) industry
  • Project Quality Day focuses on the methods and tools that assure the quality of projects

The call for papers submission deadline is July 31. The program will be chosen by an independent program committee that is focused on selecting high quality sessions. The full program will be announced in August.
