JavaOne India 2012 Tips for Paper Submissions

The following information provides general guidelines for submitting papers for JavaOne India  2012. By providing such information it does not guarantee that a submission will be accepted by the conference review committee.

General Tips

  • Session title should be descriptive of the content and use common keywords.
  • Write an abstract that is easy to read, and describes the value of the presentation. Do explicitly mention what is being discussed during the session rather than making a blank marketing or strategy pitch. For example, include mention of demonstration, case study, customer/partner participation, quantitative facts, etc.
  • Use present tense in session descriptions.
  • Submissions should be:
  • Java-related topics (not technologies such as Flex, .NET, Objective C, etc... unless it's specifically a topic about how such things INTEGRATE with Java)
  • Non-product pitches
  • Interesting/innovative uses of Java
  • Practical relevant case studies/examples/practices/etc.
  • Select values and tags that are accurate and will help attendees identify your content during a search.
  • Do not use first person (I, our, we).
  • Presentation should offer a unique solution.
  • Do not include proprietary or confidential material.
  • Submitter should secure necessary permissions before submitting.
  • Oracle reserves the right to edit all content. Abbreviated product names and unacceptable acronyms will be spelled out in the editing process and will count against the character limits.
  • Oracle may ask for copies of presentations for review.
  • Panels and Conference Sessions will be 60 minutes. We suggest allocating 10 minutes for a Q&A period within that timeframe.
  • Verify your contact and content information before submitting.

Tips for Titles and Abstracts

  • Observe the character counts for session titles and abstracts. Session title has a maximum of 80 characters, including spaces (approximately 12 to 17 words, on average). Session abstract has a maximum of 750 characters, including spaces.
  • You must use the full Oracle product name at all times.
  • You may not create acronyms or abbreviations of Oracle product names.

In general, you may not use acronyms in session titles and must spell out acronyms at first use in abstracts. Because of restricted title and session length, some widely accepted industry acronyms are acceptable (SOA, ROI, for example). Unacceptable acronyms will be spelled out in the editing process and will count against your character limits in titles and abstracts.
