OpenJDK Committers and other regular contributors traditionally meet each
February, at FOSDEM in Brussels.  Now that we’re shipping a new JDK every
six months, it’s high time that we try to meet more than once a year.

To fill that need, at least for this year, Oracle will host an OpenJDK
Committers’ Workshop on the first two days of August, immediately after
the JVM Language Summit [1] at Oracle’s campus in Santa Clara, California,

The Workshop will begin with a few prepared presentations on the state of
the OpenJDK Community and the JDK technical roadmap, but most of the time
will be an “unconference” for the discussion of both technical and
community issues.

Space will be limited, just as at the JVM Language Summit, so this won’t
be as broad a gathering as the FOSDEM Free Java meeting.  Preference will
be given to Committers with a strong record of past contributions, though
some space will be made for new Committers who have a strong potential
for ongoing future contributions.

Oracle will charge an attendance fee of $295 to cover costs.  A limited
number of scholarships, for that fee and for travel expenses, will be

The Workshop is organized by:

  Andrew Haley (Red Hat)
  Doug Lea (SUNY Oswego)
  Liam Miller-Cushon (Google)
  Mark Reinhold (Oracle)
  Dalibor Topic (Oracle)
  Johan Vos (Gluon)
