Do you have something interesting to share with the community? Innovations made with Java?, Java success stories?. We and the JConf Attendees wanna know about you.

We've divided the conference in different tracks, being:

Java Platform

Any topic related with the JVM as development platform including, Java Core, certifications, JVM internals, Java language, OpenJDK.

It doesn't matter if you execute your queries with Scala, Java, Pig, Python, R, in the end all roads converge to the JVM.

It is important to consider:

  • By historical reasons, JConf is a free for all, 110% community event. Hence we reserve the right to accept presentation with the only objective to promote a commercial product. We also have sponsorship opportunities that could fit better for this.

  • The speaker declares that presentation will be created in a "shareable" format with a proper license (we suggest CC-BY-SA 3.0 GT).

  • There is no limit for proposals per speaker.
