Nominations for the Open Source Pavilion at EclipseCon 2006

January 20, 2006 - The Eclipse Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of the Open Source Pavillion at EclipseCon 2006, March 20-23 in Santa Clara, CA. The Open Source Pavilion will showcase open source projects that support and complement the spirit of the Eclipse community. Business Objects is a co-sponsor of this new addition to EclipseCon.

Nominations are now being accepted for open source projects that would like to participate in the Open Source Pavilion. Please email your nominations to osp.nominations@eclipse.org and include project name, contact information and a brief explanation how the project has contributed to the open source community. Although not a requirement for acceptance, be sure to include any relationship the nomination has to the Eclipse Ecosystem! Nominations will close February 3, 2006.

Thanks to the generous contribution of Business Objects, scholarships will be available to help offset the costs for the participants to attend EclipseCon. Up to 10 scholarships will be available that include a free conference pass, and up to $1,500 to cover travel, lodging and food costs.

Recipients must be able to bring their own hardware (laptop preferred) and must be available during exhibitor hours to present their project at the Open Source Pavilion.
