Posted by terrencebarr on November 22, 2008 at 11:38 AM PST


It's been so busy around here lately that I haven't had time to blog about the upcoming conference - but things are heating up and the conference is a mere 8 weeks away (January 21 & 22, 2008)!

The draft agenda was posted a little while ago. Clearly, the conference has already gained a reputation in the industry ... the quality and number of submissions this year was impressive. We had much more content than we could possibly squeeze into two days and so our review committee worked hard (thanks, guys!) to pick a set of talks, presentations, and speakers that we believe provide a compelling and stimulating cross-section of what's happening in the industry today.

Here are some excerpts of the agenda:

  • Keynote by
    • Jeet Kaul (Vice President Client Software Group, Sun) and
    • Eric Klein (Vice President Java Marketing, Sun)
  • Mobility Roadmap by Craig Gering (Senior Director Mobile and Embedded Engineering, Sun)
  • Technical talks and demos around the upcoming JavaFX Mobile
  • Tru-2-Way Roadmap and Java TV in Brazil
  • MIDP 3
  • Sprint Titan and the mobile OSGi platform
  • Tools - Java ME SDK, NetBean Mobility, and Eclipse
  • New tricks for phoneME Advanced
  • JavaCard 3.0
  • Mobile development topics around touch-screen devices
  • Sony Ericssons' Project Capuchin
  • Robotics and embedded control topics such as the 'Swarm of Brian'
  • A number of the ever-popular lightning talks and poster sessions
  • ... and much more (draft agenda)

Of course, the full two-day conference includes breakfast and lunch each day as well as the popular community social event that gives you an excellent opportunity to hang out, meet your fellow community members and project leads, and make connections.

All that for only US $175 (early bird pricing until December 5th) - true to our goal of creating a community conference (see: Java Mobile & Embedded Community) also from the pricing perspective.


Check our the current draft agenda. For additional information on the previous conference please see the testimonials, pictures, wrap-up, and full archive.

PS: While the Call for Papers is closed we still accept poster sessions. To find out more and submit a poster session please see the CfP page.

Register today & stay tuned - more information in the conference will be coming over the next few weeks.
