2009 JavaOne Conference Proposal Notification

The JavaOne 2009 conference put out a call for papers and I submitted this session abstract. Today the reject for this came, pretty much what could be expected as the chance for an accept was pretty small. I wanted to post this for posterity:

27 Feb 2009
Dear Eric D. ,
 

Sun Microsystems, Inc. and the 2009 JavaOne(sm) Conference Content Team are grateful for your proposal to present at the Conference. The overall number of submissions exceeded the conference session capacity by over 400%! The volume of high quality submissions made the selection process extremely difficult. As a result, we regret to inform you that we will be unable to accept your proposal entitled ' Java defeating the Financial Crisis - a tale from the front-line '.

With over 1300 proposals submitted, we regret that we cannot provide information about why a specific session was declined, However, in the spirit of helping people better understand how the selection process works, we have created the following blog, which includes comments by members of the content selection committee:

Again, thank you very much for your submission. We appreciate your continued support of the JavaOne conference.

Sincerely,
JavaOne Conference Content Team
