Call for Papers

Deadline Extension

The submission deadline has been extended to June 18 (see below).


The goal of the IWST workshop series is to create and foster a forum around advances or experience in Smalltalk. We welcome contributions on all aspects, theoretical as well as practical, of Smalltalk-related topics.

There are two possible kinds of submissions, which must be in ACM SIGPLAN style:

  • Research papers (up to 10 pages). Submissions in this category will be rigorously reviewed, and accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
  • Demonstration papers (up to 4 pages). Submissions in this category will not be published in the ACM Digital Library, but will be available for download from the workshop web page.

Submission and Reviewing Process

The EasyChair submission web site is at

Authors will be given the opportunity to comment on reviewers' work by providing feedback on the reviews. For this purpose, a questionnaire will be sent to authors. Their answers will be evaluated anonymously, and feedback will be handed on to reviewers.
