Seventh Summer School 1999

August 30 - September 3
Gent, Belgium

ESUG (European Smalltalk Users' Group) held its 7th Users Conference in Gent, Belgium, from August 30th to September 3rd 1999. Gent is a nice historic city in the vicinity of Bruges, the Venice of the North, as well as famous cities such as Antwerp and Brussels. This will be a unique opportunity for attendees to meet well-known European Smalltalkers from both the academic and industrial fields, and to gain hands-on experience of Smalltalk's most advanced techniques. Non-European Smalltalkers are of course welcome.

The conference is a non-profit event organized by ESUG. It was supported by the Faculty of Agricultural and Applied Biological Sciences of University of Gent, and sponsored by Cincom, Delaware and MediaGeniX.

The Program of this Summer School is available.
