ESUG 2016, Innovation Technology Awards

ESUG 2016, 13th Innovation Technology Awards

Have you written innovative Smalltalk? The developers of any Smalltalk-based software can enter by submitting a 3-5min video of their software. Entrants demo their systems in a session at the end of Monday August 22, 2016, after which the conference attendees vote. (A vote consists in providing a sorted list of 3 preferred pieces of software.)

The top 3 teams with the most innovative software will receive, respectively, 500 Euros, 300 Euros and 200 Euros. The results are announced in the Awards ceremony that is held during the social event.

Applicants should provide the following information on the conference registration server. Once you have registered your personal info, an 'Awards' menu allows submitting your software. You can provide this information when you first register, or login again later and update your details.

Info to provide:

  • Name of the software
  • Licence information (free, shareware, or commercial)
  • Name of the Smalltalk dialect used
  • Name, Affiliation and Country of developers

Besides, it would be great if the submission could include:

  • URL for a video (3-5 min) showing a screencast / demo of the software
  • URL for downloading the software or at least a runnable demo
  • Deadline: August 21, 2016

Any Smalltalker can apply (students, companies, ...). The presented piece of code/software should be written in Smalltalk or directly support Smalltalk (e.g. Smalltalk VM). All Smalltalk dialects are accepted. The applicant should be "strongly related" to the presented code, be it as an author, as owner of the copyright/copyleft, or as an official representative of the copyright/copyleft owner.

CALL FOR PAPERS IWST16 — International Workshop on Smalltalk Technologies

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 results.
  • 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.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: May 15th, 2016
  • Notification deadline: June 20th, 2016
  • Camera-ready : July 13th, 2016
  • Workshop : August 23th, 2016

All accepted papers will be published in ACM DL (To be confirmed) Best papers would be extended in an International Journal

Topics

We welcome contributions on all aspects, theoretical as well as practical, of Smalltalk related topics such as:

  • Aspect-oriented programming,
  • Design patterns,
  • Experience reports,
  • Frameworks,
  • Implementation, new dialects or languages implemented in Smalltalk,
  • Interaction with other languages,
  • Meta-programming and Meta-modeling,
  • Tools

Best Paper Award

To encourage the submission of high-quality papers, the IWST organizing committee is very proud to announce a Best Paper Award for this edition of IWST.

We thank the Lam Research Corporation for its financial contribution which makes it possible for prizes for the three best papers: 1000 USD for first place, 600 USD for second place and 400 USD for third place.

The ranking will be decided by the program committee during the review process. The awards will be given during the ESUG conference social event.

The Best Paper Award will take place only with a minimum of six submissions. Notice also that to be illegible, a paper must be presented at the workshop by one of the author and that the presenting author must be registered at the ESUG conference.

Publication

Both submissions and final papers must be prepared using the ACM SIGPLAN 10 point format. Templates for Word and LaTeX are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm. This site also contains links to useful informations on how to write effective submissions.
