  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

  awarded to authors of best pieces of Smalltalk-related projects
  and an international workshop on Smalltalk and dynamic languages
