In the past three years the Smalltalks series of conferences ( have been a lively forum on Smalltalk-based software technologies that attracted over more than 200 people from both academia and industry for three days.
During the first three conferences, the industrial partners showed the applicability of Smalltalk in business, while researches (both students and professors) showed their advances and didactic uses of Smalltalk. The presented approaches and methodologies concerned the language, its implementation technology, its programming tools as well as the software development culture it supports.
This year the accepted papers not only will be available in the website but also the best ranked ones will be published in a special edition of Elsevier COMLAN Journal. Thus, we invite to submit papers in the research track on original scientific research conducted in and/or for Smalltalk in general.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
  • Aspects, Aspect Languages and Applications.
  • Ambient Intelligence, Ubiquitous / Pervasive Computing and Embedded Systems.
  • Compilation Technology, Optimization, Virtual Machines.
  • Educational Material.
