ESUG offers 150 Euros for each international conference paper whose concepts involves an implementation in Smalltalk


  • After notification of acceptance, one of the authors sends to the ESUG board the article, a CV, and a brief explanation of how Smalltalk was used
  • In case the ESUG board decides to support the promotion, the author has to send to ESUG after the camera-ready deadline a PDF of the article, where ESUG is referenced in the acknowledgment section, including a link to
  • During the presentation at the conference, the author must mention ESUG support (e.g. the ESUG Logo)
  • After the presentation at the conference the author sends to ESUG a PDF version of the slides, where there is a visible reference to ESUG (e.g. the ESUG Logo). ESUG will put the slides on the ESUG website
  • The author can then trigger the payment by sending an e-Mail to the ESUG board
  • A maximum of 3 supported articles per year per institution is allowed
