This year, we will have a full day event, with a particular focus on two topics for which Eclipse is an ecosystem of choice: embedded world, and Machine-to-Machine (M2M).
You should start thinking submitting your talk if you have interesting thoughts to share about:
- Embedded & Modeling for embedded. Modeling technologies have a proven track record in terms of embedded and critical software development. Coupled with other tools and frameworks (ALM, requirements management, code analysis, …), they turn out to change the way software is being developed in the industry, and how it is being supported (usually for years, in e.g. the aircraft industry).
- M2M & Internet of Things. According to analysts, there will literally be tens of billions of connected objects by the end of 2020! This proves to be a challenge in terms of new software engineering needs, of scalibility (Cloud computing and SaaS anyone? ;)), of management of these huge fleets of “objects” on the field… There are also many new use cases and business models around M2M and IoT that can, and will, benefit from Open Source ecosystems.
If you’d like to share an industrial use case, talk about a project you are working on, or anything related to these topics, you should submit your abstract by Apr. 15, 2012.
More information on the wiki page of the event… and I am now looking forward to your proposals!
