The goal of the research track is to have a forum for publications related to Smalltalk and dynamically-typed languages. We encourage authors to submit excellent quality papers as we plan to produce proceedings. The organizing committee strongly discourages the submission of product presentations and other marketing related material. The research track is about research! A non exhaustive list of topics is :

  • new languages features (mixins, AOP,...)
  • meta and reflective programming
  • code analysis (refactoring,...)
  • process development (Agile processes, Unit testing, ...)
  • virtual machines (optimization, new trends, ...)
  • frameworks (web, graphical...)
  • software evolution (metrics,...)

Best papers will be published in a special issue of the Elsevier international journal "Computer Languages, Systems & Structures"
