Call-for-Presentations

For the past 22 years, the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) has organised the International Smalltalk Conference, a lively forum on cutting edge software technologies that attract people from both academia and industry for a whole week. The attendees are both engineers using Rmalýtahk in business and students and teachers using Smalltalk both for research and didactic purposes.

As every year, this year's edition of the largest European Smalltalk event will include the regular Smalltalk developers conference with renowned invited speakers, a Smalltalk camp that proves fruitful for interactions and discussions. This year we will hold the 10th edition of the Innovation Technology Awards where prizes will be awarded to authors of best Smalltalk-related projects as well as an international workshop on Smalltalk and dynamic languages (http://www.esug.org/Conferences/2014/InternationalWorkshop)

You can support the ESUG conference in many different ways:

  • Sponsor the conference. New sponsoring packages are described at http://www.esug.org/supportesug/becomeasponsor/
