Dear Smalltalkers,

We apologize for multiple reception of this announcement.

The International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies, is a European
Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) Conference joint event, that focuses on
research activities - namely academic creative work undertaken on
smalltalk use, and more generally on object technologies.

IWST was launched in 2009, in Brest, during the 17th ESUG Conference.
The second edition took place in Barcelona, and the third edition was
held in 2011 at the heart of historic Edinburgh. Next edition will be
in Gent, Begium this summer (28th of august).

ESUG gathers groups of professionals and hobbyists who share an
interest in the Smalltalk programming languages and related
The goal of the workshop is to create a forum around advances or
experience in Smalltalk. IWST contributes to triggering discussions
and exchanges of ideas.

As always, we make a point to have a very constructive paper review
process that aims to provide in-depth comments and suggestions to all
of them (no one-liners!) This makes it ideal to disseminate new
research directions, and is a good venue for early stage PhD students
to receive feedback on their work. In addition, we intent to invite
best papers to a journal special issue as we did last year.

Looking forward to your submissions, and to meeting you in Gent!

Best regards,

Loïc Lagadec&  Alain Plantec
Co-chairs of IWST
