General registration for the 2017 JVM Language Summit is now open.  The event will be held at Oracle's Santa Clara campus on July 31-August 2, 2017.

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 choice.

Presentations will be recorded and made available to the public.

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 discussions.


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 (about 6 each day) interspersed with less-formal multitrack "workshop" discussion groups (2-4 each day) and, possibly, impromptu "lightning talks."

Workshops will be less structured than in the past, favoring an open discussion format with only a small amount of prepared material. Thus, rather than collecting workshop abstracts from speakers, we're asking 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.
