Speaker FAQs

Thank you for taking the time to consider presenting at Eclipse Converge 2017.

Please be sure to read the Call for Papers page as well as these FAQs.

How do I add speakers when creating a submission?

A user can only be added as a speaker for a talk if she/he has a valid eclipse.org account and if they have successfully logged in to an EclipseCon website at least once in the past year.

What are the registration discounts for speakers?

  • Each accepted Standard Talk earns one 100%-off discount; the discount goes to the first speaker listed on the talk; each accepted Tutorial earns two 100%-off discounts; the discount goes to the first and second speakers listed on the talk
  • Speaker discount codes may be used for either a pass for Eclipse Converge + Devoxx US, or for an Eclipse Converge (only) ticket; please see the Registration page for details
  • Speaker discounts are not transferable; unauthorized use will result in your registration being cancelled and additional registration fees may be incurred
  • All speakers must register for the conference in order to attend the session and give the talk

How do I register as a speaker?

Speaker discounts are implemented via discount codes. If you have submitted a talk, please do not register until you know the status of your submissions. Your accept email from the submission system will include detailed information on registering with a speaker discount code.

How do I get my discount code?

Codes will be emailed to accepted speakers after the program is chosen.

Does everyone listed on a talk need to register for the conference?

All speakers listed on a talk need to register.

What should I do if I have to cancel my talk?

First, try to find a colleague who can fill in for you and then email us to let us know. Registrations are transferable if your plans change. If you must cancel, please email us as soon as possible so that we can fill your place in the program with a talk on the waiting list.
