Goals and scopes
The goals of the workshop is to create a forum around advances or
experience in Smalltalk and to trigger discussions and exchanges of
ideas. The topics of your paper can be on all aspect of Smalltalk,
theoretical as well as practical. Participants are invited to submit
research articles or industrial papers. This year we want to open two
different tracks: one research track and one industrial track with
less scientific constraints.

We expect papers of three kinds:

Short position papers describing emerging ideas
Long research papers with deeper description of experiments and of
research results.
Industrial papers with presentation of real and innovative Smalltalk
applications; this kind of paper should enlighten why Smalltalk is
really appropriate for your application.
We will not enforce any length restriction.
