If you’re a Java technology expert, conference attendees want to hear it straight from other Java users—like you. So don’t wait—proposals must be submitted by April 29.
The JavaOne 2015 Call for Proposals is now open. Attendees at the conference are eager to hear from the world’s most knowledgeable Java experts. They’re looking for insights and improvements they can put to use in their own jobs: exciting innovations, different or easier ways to implement, unique use cases, lessons learned, the best of best practices.
If you’ve got something special to share with other Java users and developers, they want to hear from you, and so do we. Submit your proposal now for this opportunity to present at JavaOne, the most important Java technology conference of the year.
We recommend you take the time to review the General Information, Submission Information, Content Program Policies, and Tips and Guidelines below before you begin. We look forward to your submission.
Please submit your proposal by clicking on the link below, then selecting the event for which you are submitting.

Title*: Maximum character limit is 80 characters, including spaces (approximately 12 to 17 words)
Abstract*: Maximum character limit is 750 characters, including spaces
Special note to submitters to the Java and Server Side Development track: Consider the following as inspiration for submissions to this track (the only real limits are your own imagination on anything in the Java EE ecosystem):
- Existing and upcoming Java EE technology JSRs and implementations
- Cool topics that extend Java EE in new and interesting ways
- Case studies using Java EE 6 or Java EE 7 (including migration from other technologies)
- Best practices for using Java EE technologies
- Emerging trends in the ecosystem such as mobile, HTML5, caching, complex event processing, modularity, and the like
- Insightful research, development, and analysis work in server-side Java
Session Type*: Describes the format in which the topic will be delivered
Ignite Session: A fast-paced talk with a format that’s pre-set to move slides at 15-second intervals.
The Ignite evening event is a series of “lightning” talks on a variety of subjects both technical and nontechnical. Join your peers for a fun night of fast-paced talks on who knows what, from JavaOne movers and shakers. The format is preset to move slides at blistering 15 second intervals: speakers use it or lose it!
Notes for submitters:
The format of Ignite talks is five minutes with 20 slides set to auto-advance every 15 seconds. Ignite sessions can be technical or "geeky" in nature, but can also be on nontechnical topics. A successful Ignite talk will raise awareness, thought, and action on the subject presented. To submit an Ignite talk, select "Ignite [5 minutes]" as the session type. Even though you are required to populate a primary track, this field will be ignored.
JavaOne4Kids Day: A two-hour hands-on workshop, targeted at kids 10 to 18 years old.
Children have an amazing capacity to absorb technology at an early age. It is critical that they are introduced to it in a fun way that piques their interest so they keep coming back for more. These fun ways could involve building a new game using Scratch, Snap, or Greenfoot; learning the fundamentals of electricity (such as volt, wattage, ampere, current, and resistance) by building circuits using Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and Dough; or exploring robotics with LEGO Mindstorms and NAO. Bring your experience and ideas to inspire the next generation of Java developers.
Notes for submitters:
JavaOne4Kids Day happens on the Saturday before the JavaOne conference, October 24, 2015. This track is for developers and educators who are interested in delivering a two-hour hands-on workshop targeted to kids 10 to 18 years old. Presenters will be responsible for preparing all the content and required hardware and software for 50 children—exclusive of laptops, which will be provided. To submit a JavaOne4Kids Day talk, select "JavaOne4Kids Day" as the session type. Even though you are required to populate a primary track, this field will be ignored.
Presentation Summary*: For evaluation only, this is an additional description of your proposal to help the reviewers better understand your submission.
Experience Level*: Identifies the knowledge level of the targeted attendee.
Link to Supporting Video*: Include a hyperlink to a video of one of your past presentations or speaking engagements. If you do not have a video, please record a two-minute presentation and submit a link to the online recording.
Submitting on behalf of a user group?: If you are a current member of a user group and are submitting your session as a member, please answer yes to this question. Please keep in mind, each submission may only be associated with one user group and the content should be relevant to what that group supports.
Each submission must have at least one speaker assigned in order to be considered.
