We expect all the talks to be deeply technical, given by designers and implementors to designers and implementors. We all speak Code here!

The talks, we hope and expect, will inform the audience, in detail, about the state of the art of language design and implementation on the JVM, and the present and future capabilities of the JVM itself. (Some will do so indirectly by discussing non-JVM technologies.) Beyond that, these talks will inspire us to work together with JVM-based technologies to build the next great software systems.

Notes on the Agenda

  • Talks will run in a single track, 45 minutes each (including questions).
  • Workshop sessions will run for 60 minutes, with two or more sessions in parallel. Workshops are scheduled so that informal discussions can carry on into the subsequent time slot.
  • As last year, light breakfast and lunch are served on site.
  • Two or three breakout rooms are available for workshops, quiet conversation, and ad hoc consultations.

For Speakers

The conference will be recorded professionally and posted on the internet. We encourage you to allow your talk (including audio and slides) to be recorded and posted. A speaker release form will be provided before the conference; if you do not wish your talk to be recorded, simply do not complete the release form. If you release our use of your written materials, we will put your talk’s PDF (or other presentation file) on the conference wiki, so that the other conference participants, and the rest of the world, can see it there.

Please send PDFs of your slides in advance to Brian Goetz, so that we can have them ready to project from our laptop. But, if you plan to present from your own machine, please make sure it can talk to a VGA connector. (Macs generally require an adapter to do this.) We will also supply a clip-on microphone.
