The ServerSide Java Symposium 2009: Call for Abstracts and/or Suggestions

The organizers of TSSJS 2009 have asked me to serve as the Languages track chair, and as long-time readers of this blog will already have guessed, I've accepted quite happily. This means that if you're interested in presenting at TSSJS on a language-on-the-JVM, you now know where to send the bottle of Macallan 18. ;-)

Having said that (in jest, of course--bribes have to be at least a Macallan 25 or Macallan Cask Strength to have any real effect), I'm curious to get a sense of what languages--and what depth in each--people are interested in seeing presented there. Groovy, JRuby and Scala are obvious suggestions, but how deep would people be interested in seeing these? Would you prefer to see more languages at a shallower depth, or going really deep on a few?

(Disclaimer: emails sent to me directly or comments on this blog will weigh in on my decision-making process, but don't necessarily count as submitted abstracts; make sure you send them via the "official" channels to ensure they get considered, particularly since some proposals will be "borderline" on several different tracks, and thus could conceivably make it in via a different track than mine.)

Y'all know how to reach me....

Update: The deadline for abstracts is November 19th, so make sure to check out the website when it goes live (Nov 11th), and if you can't figure out how to submit an abstract, send it to me directly....
