 For the past 21 years, the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) has
 organised the International Smalltalk Conference, a lively forum on
 cutting edge software technologies that attract people from both
 academia and industry for a whole week. The attendees are both
 engineers using Smalltalk in business and students and teachers
 using Smalltalk both for research and didactic purposes.

 As every year, this year's edition of the largest European Smalltalk
 event will include the regular Smalltalk developers conference with
 renowned invited speakers, a Smalltalk camp that proves fruitful for
 interactions and discussions. This year will be held the
 9th edition of the Innovation Technology Awards where prizes will be
 awarded to authors of best pieces of Smalltalk-related projects
 and an international workshop on Smalltalk and dynamic languages

 You can support the ESUG conference in many different ways:

 * Sponsor the conference. New sponsoring packages are described at
 * Submit a talk, a software or a paper to one of the events. See below.
