Smalltalks 2011 Best Papers to Be Submitted to International Journal SCP

Smalltalks 2011 (the 5th International Conference on Smalltalk Technologies) will be held at the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes in Argentina on November 3-5, 2011. The Smalltalks series of conferences (http://www.fast.org.ar/) is a lively forum on Smalltalk-based software technologies that brings together more than 200 people from both academia and industry for a period of three days. 

Past editions of the conference have included many high-quality presentations from industry and research, and have shown interesting applications of Smalltalk, advances in the Smalltalk language, didactic uses of Smalltalk and much more.

Similar to last year, Smalltalks 2011 will include a dedicated research track. Submissions to this research track presenting original scientific contributions to, or using Smalltalk in general are encouraged, with an extra incentive taking place this year. Those who submit papers that make the most substantial impact on conference attendees are invited to submit an extended version of their work in a special issue of the International Journal SCP (Science of Computer Programming), http://ees.elsevier.com/scico/default.asp.  

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: 

  • Aspects, Aspect Languages and Applications
  • Ambient Intelligence, Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing and Embedded Systems
  • Compilation Technology, Optimization, Virtual Machines
  • Educational Material
  • Language Engineering, Extensions
  • Model-Driven Engineering/Development
  • Meta-Modeling, Reflection and Meta-programming
  • Programming in the Large, Design, Architectures and Components
  • Programming Environments, Browsers, User Interfaces, UI Frameworks
  • Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (Static analysis, refactoring, type inference, metrics)
  • Team Management
  • Testing, Extreme Programming/Practices
  • Web Services, Internet Applications, Event-driven Programming
  • Experience Reports 

Papers should be written in English, in PDF format and should not exceed 15 
pages (including references and figures), using the Elsevier journal format. 

Submitted papers must strictly adhere to submission guidelines and must not be under review for publication elsewhere or published previously. If you have questions, please send an e-mail to Jannik Laval and Andy Kellens at smalltalks2011-chair@fast.org.ar
