Smalltalks 2012 Call for Papers

Posted on in Categories Events, Smalltalk

The Smalltalks series of conferences is a lively forum on Smalltalk-based software technologies that brings together more than 200 people from both academia and industry for three days.

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

Similar to last year, Smalltalks 2012 will include a dedicated research track. We welcome submissions to this research track presenting original scientific contributions to, or using, Smalltalk in general.

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 and virtual machines
  • Educational material
  • Language engineering and extensions
  • Model-driven engineering/development
  • Meta-modeling, reflection and meta-programming
  • Programming in the large, design, architectures and components
    • Programming environments, browsers, user interfaces and UI frameworks
    • Source-code analysis and manipulation (static analysis, refactoring, type inference and metrics)
      • Team management
      • Testing, extreme programming/practices
      • Web services, internet applications and event-driven programming
      • Experience reports
