The Community Event

The Community Event is the largest OSGi event of the year with multiple full tracks, BOFs and other OSGi activities taking place. It features talks on topics ranging from use cases and experiences with OSGi in enterprise, embedded, cloud and IoT environments, to specification updates and tutorials, meet-ups and other informal sessions.

Co-located with EclipseCon Europe 2017, attendees of each conference have full access to both programs.

Call For Papers – Now Closed – Program to be announced soon

The Call for Papers is now closed.  The OSGi Community Event 2017 Program Committee are hard at work selecting the talks and tutorial to make up the conference program.  Full details will be announced soon.

“Run OSGi on your robot and teach it new tricks” is the early bird talk selection for 2017. The featured talk was submitted by Dr. Tim Verbelen, senior researcher at imec, a leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technologies, and Invited Contributor to the OSGi Alliance

Why Attend?

The OSGi Community Event has proven over many years to be the best opportunity of the year to meet with peers and colleagues to understand and discuss the benefits of OSGi and how it is being used in existing and emerging markets. Talks, tutorials, meet-ups and numerous social networking activities arm attendees with actionable information.

Why Sponsor?

The OSGi Community Event is a unique opportunity to promote your organization to an OSGi-specific audience, as well as an audience of inherent OSGi users and potential users through Eclipse. Last year, the co-located events drew 600 attendees, including enterprise and embedded software architects, IT decision-makers and developers who are using OSGi or plan to use OSGi.

New for 2017, we have dedicated OSGi sponsorship packages for the Basic and Premium sponsorship level as well as the Elite Dual OSGi and EclipseCon Europe sponsor package.  This provides you with the perfect opportunity to demonstrate your support for OSGi at this co-located event.

If you have any questions about sponsorship of the event or would like to discuss the options available please contact us.
