Call for Contributions ‒ 22nd International Smalltalk Joint Conference
The attendees include engineers who use Smalltalk in business as well as students and teachers who use Smalltalk both for research and didactic purposes.
The conference will be held in Cambridge, England from August 18-22, 2014 (http://www.esug.org/Conferences/2014/), and conference organizers are seeking participation from attendees to make this conference the huge success that the Smalltalk community has come to expect.
Like previous years, this year’s edition of the largest European Smalltalk event will include the regular Smalltalk developer’s conference featuring renowned invited speakers as well as a Smalltalk camp that provides the ideal setting for interactions and discussions.
This year will also mark the 10th edition of the Innovation Technology Awards, where prizes will be awarded to authors of the best Smalltalk-related projects. The top three teams with the most innovative software will receive, respectively, 500 Euros, 300 Euros and 200 Euros during an awards ceremony at the conference. Developers of any Smalltalk-based software are welcome to compete. For more information, visit http://www.esug.org/Conferences/2014/.
In addition, an international workshop on Smalltalk and dynamic languages (http://www.esug.org/Conferences/2013/InternationalWorkshop) will also take place as well as Camp Smalltalk.
You can support the ESUG conference in many different ways, such as:
- Sponsoring the conference. New sponsoring packages are described at http://www.esug.org/supportesug/becomeasponsor/.
- Submitting a talk, software or a paper to one of the events (see below).
- Attending the conference. We’d like to beat 2008’s attendance record of 170 people who attended the conference in Amsterdam.
- Enrolling in the Student Volunteers Program. Students can get free registration and hosting. If you are a student wanting to attend ESUG, have you considered being a student volunteer? Student volunteers help keep the conference running smoothly; in return, they have free accommodations, while still having most of the time free to enjoy the conference.
