Please note that ESUG (the European Smalltalk Users Group) is a non- 
profit organization that promotes Smalltalk since 1991. ESUG has many  
promotion actions :
-encourage (financially) people write papers about Smalltalk in  
-encourage researchers to use Smalltalk and say it in  conferences,
-Support people to give talks Smalltalk and related technologies (e.g.  
-Pay students to develop open source software during summer  
(SummerTalk program)
-Sponsor Smalltalk related events
-Support Smalltalk open-source initiatives (e.g. Squeak foundation :-)
-Sponsor students to visit laboratories doing Smalltalk
-Organize Smalltalk events and particularly a yearly Smalltalk  
dedicated conference that gathers Smalltalkers for all countries  
--ESUG has a student volunteers program for its conferences: every  
year accommodation and a free registration are offered to about 15  
students that help local organizers for dealing with the conference  
--BTW, I have a scoop for squeakers here : The 16th ESUG Smalltalk  
conference will be held in Amsterdam next summer. Don't miss it!

The ESUG board is open for supporting other projects. So, if you have  
ideas contact us.
