International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies – Call for Papers

Posted on in Categories Events

The goals of the workshop are to create a forum around advances or experiences in Smalltalk and to trigger discussions and exchanges of ideas. The topics of papers can be on all aspects of Smalltalk—theoretical as well as practical. Participants are invited to submit research articles or industrial papers. This year workshop organizers want to open two different tracks: a research track and an industrial track that has fewer scientific constraints.

Types of Papers Requested

  • Short position papers describing emerging ideas
  • Long research papers with a deeper description of experiments and research results
  • Industrial papers with presentation of real and innovative Smalltalk applications.  This type of paper should enlighten the audience as to why Smalltalk is appropriate for your application.

Papers can be of any length.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: June 15, 2014
  • Notification deadline: July 15, 2014
  • Workshop: August 19, 2014

All accepted papers will be published in ACM DL (to be confirmed).


Workshop organizers welcome contributions on all aspects (theoretical as well as practical) of Smalltalk-related topics such as:

  • Aspect-oriented programming
  • Design patterns
  • Experience reports
  • Frameworks
  • Implementation, new dialects or languages implemented in Smalltalk
  • Interaction with other languages
  • Meta-programming and Meta-modeling
  • Tools

Best Paper Award

To encourage the submission of high-quality papers, the IWST organizing committee is very proud to announce a Best Paper Award for this edition of IWST.

The committee thanks Lam Research Corporation for its financial contribution that makes it possible to award a prize for the three best papers: 1000 USD for first place, 600 USD for second place and 400 USD for third place.

The ranking will be decided by the program committee during the review process. The awards will be given during the ESUG conference social event.

The Best Paper Award will take place only with a minimum of six submissions. Notice also that to be illegible, a paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors, and the presenting author must be registered at the ESUG conference.


Both submissions and final papers must be prepared using the ACM SIGPLAN 10 point format. Templates for Word and LaTeX are available at This site also contains links to useful information on how to write effective submissions.
