  For the past 21 years, the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) has

  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
