ESUG 2013 ─ Call for Presentations Deadline Extension

For the past 21 years, the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) has organized the International Smalltalk Conference, a lively forum on cutting-edge software technologies that attract people from both academia and industry.  ESUG 2013 will be held on September 9-13, 2013 in Annecy, France.

Although conference organizers for ESUG 2013 are happy to report that they have received many excellent presentation proposals, they realize that Smalltalkers are very busy people.  Therefore, they have decided to extend the presentation deadline to July 7, 2013.

Some of the topics for the discussions and tutorials include:

  • XP practices,  development tools,  experience reports
  • Model-driven development,  web development, team management
  • Meta-modeling,  security,  new libraries and frameworks
  • Educational material,  Embedded systems and robotics
  • SOA and web services, interaction with other programming languages

New This Year!

  • Teaching Pearls: Sessions on teaching design aspects. Your tips and tricks for teaching Smalltalk or OOP.

Several 10- to 15-minute sessions are expected.

The event will be held at IAE Savoie Mont-Blanc – University of Savoie.  This is an opportunity for students and local professionals to discover Smalltalk.  A room will be freely accessible, and talks and workshops for Smalltalk beginners are encouraged.
