General registration for the 2018 JVM Language Summit is now open. The event 
will be held at Oracle's Santa Clara campus on July 30-31, 2018.

Speaker registration remains open through May 25. If you have an interesting 
topic to speak about, please submit an abstract!

Many JVM Language Summit speakers and attendees are also deeply involved in the 
OpenJDK Community, where they do much of their technical work in their roles as 
OpenJDK Committers. This year, as an experiment, we're going to host the first 
OpenJDK Committers' Workshop right after the JVM Language Summit. To fit 
everything into the week, and allow time for travel, there will be two (rather 
than the usual three) days of the JVM Language Summit followed immediately by 
two days of the OpenJDK Committers' Workshop, at the same location.

In short, OpenJDK Committers in attendance can look forward to four days of 
intense, inspiring collaboration around the JVM this year.


The JVM Language Summit is an open technical collaboration among language 
designers, compiler writers, tool builders, runtime engineers, and VM 
architects. We will share our experiences as creators of both the JVM and 
programming languages for the JVM. We also welcome non-JVM developers of 
similar technologies to attend or speak on their runtime, VM, or language of 

Presentations will be recorded and made available to the public.

The summit will be immediately followed by the OpenJDK Committers' Workshop, 
August 1-2.

This event is being organized by language and JVM engineers -- no marketers 
involved! So bring your slide rules and be prepared for some seriously geeky 


The summit is held in a single classroom-style room to support direct 
communication between participants. About 100-120 attendees are expected.

The schedule consists of a single track of traditional presentations 
interspersed with less-formal multitrack "workshop" discussion groups and, 
possibly, impromptu "lightning talks."

Workshops are open discussions with only a small amount of prepared material. 
We ask each registrant to suggest a few topics of interest. After choosing the 
most popular topics, we'll ask some registrants if they'd like to act as 
discussion leaders.
