technologies that brings together more than 200 people from both academia and industry for a period of three days. 

Past editions of Smalltalks have included many high-quality presentations from industry and research.
These contributions have shown interesting applications of Smalltalk, advances in the Smalltalk language, didactic uses of Smalltalk and so on.

Similar to last year, Smalltalks 2011 will include a dedicated research track.
