UK Smalltalk User Group on Wednesday, June 24th

The next meeting of the UK Smalltalk User Group will be on Wednesday, June 24th.

Fabio Niephaus (https://fniephaus.com) will talk to us about TruffleSqueak (https://github.com/hpi-swa/trufflesqueak), a Squeak/Smalltalk VM and Polyglot Programming Environment for the GraalVM (https://www.graalvm.org).

He is a Ph.D. student within the Software Architecture Group (https://hpi.de/swa) at the Hasso Plattner Institute, University of Potsdam, Germany. He has strong interests in dynamic programming languages, virtual execution environments, and software development tools.

Fabio will talk about the motivation for his research in the field of Polyglot Programming. With a live demo, he will show how TruffleSqueak can be used as a polyglot IDE for other languages such as Java, Javascript, Python, R, or Ruby. He will also introduce us to the GraalVM ecosystem and discuss his experience in writing a Smalltalk VM in Truffle, GraalVM's language implementation framework.

Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this will be an online meeting.

IWST 2020: Virtual Edition

In light of the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 situation, to guarantee the safety and well-being of all, the IWST Steering Committee has decided to move to a virtual event format for this year to be held Sept. 29th and 30th. The 2020 paper review, WiP submission and acceptance processes will proceed normally with a modification of the upcoming deadlines:

  • Submission deadline: July 15th, 2020
  • Notification deadline: September 8th, 2020
  • Workshop: September 29-30th, 2020.

Like last year, we are very proud to announce a Best Paper Award. We thank the Lam Research Corporation for its financial contribution which makes it possible for prizes for the three best papers. We are also happy to announce that accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

We will follow up with further details on conference organization, presentation formats, and howto guides.

The global idea is to collect all required material a week ahead of schedule to prevent any live technical issue: slides, but also video. Only the post presentation Q&A sessions will be interactive.

IWST has now a significant history and has served for years as a smart playground for young researchers to practice writing articles & presenting results.

In parallel, senior researchers take benefit from IWST to expose mature work and propose some retrospective or draw future directions.

Mixing these two kinds of contributors makes IWST that attractive.

Let’s do the 2020 edition conformed to this legacy
