Announcing the Smalltalks 2017 conference

To continue with our tradition, FAST is organizing Smalltalks, the free conference on Smalltalk based technologies, research and industry applications.

This year the conference will be held on November 15, 16 and 17 at Universidad Nacional de La Plata, in La Plata, Argentina.

We encourage you to start thinking about:

  • Talks you want to present
  • Workshops you want to organize
  • Assistance you might be able to provide

Also, if your company/institution is interested in participating as a Sponsor, this year there will be plenty of opportunities like:

  • Helping with the expenses of distinguished speakers and students wanting to travel to the conference
  • Hosting special events
  • Adding your brand to conference materials (banners, souvenirs, etc.)

We will be releasing more details on this shortly, but there's no need for you to wait, contact us about sponsoring options now!

Specific dates for submissions will be published soon. We will post the updated information on our website and social media accounts, but we'll also make sure to let you know by mail.

Follow us at @fast_arg to keep up to date with news and announcements.
