IWST16 — International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies

Prague, Czech Republic; August 23th, 2016

Goals and scopes

The goals of the workshop is to create a forum around advances or
experience in Smalltalk and to trigger discussions and exchanges of ideas.
The topics of your paper can be on all aspect of Smalltalk, theoretical as
well as practical. Participants are invited to submit research articles or
industrial papers. This year we want to open two different tracks: one
research track and one industrial track with less scientific constraints.

We expect papers of three kinds:

Short position papers describing emerging ideas
Long research papers with deeper description of experiments and of research
Industrial papers with presentation of real and innovative Smalltalk
applications; this kind of paper should enlighten why Smalltalk is really
appropriate for your application.
We will not enforce any length restriction.
