News and Updates

We have extended the paper registration deadline. New papers can now be registered until the submission deadline.

Theme and Goals

The Eclipse platform (http://www.eclipse.org) was originally designed for building integrated development environment for object-oriented applications. Over the years it has developed into a vibrant ecosystem of platforms, toolkits, libraries, modeling frameworks, and tools that support various languages and programming styles.

The goal of the ETX workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas about potential new uses of Eclipse and how Eclipse technology can be leveraged, improved, and/or extended for research and education.

EXT 2014 will take place 20 or 21 October 2014. The conference venue is the Marriot Hotel in Portland, Oregon, United States, co-located with SPLASH 2014.
