Smalltalks 2008 - 2nd Argentinian Smalltalk Conference

Call for Papers Smalltalks 2008 - 2nd Argentinian Smalltalk Conference
November 13th – 15th
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Conference Site:


Last year, Smalltalks 2007 (1st Argentinian Smalltalk Conference) was a lively forum on Smalltalk-based software technologies that attracted over more than 200 people from both academia and industry for three days. During this first conference, the industrial partners showed the applicability of Smalltalk in
business, while the students and professors showed their research 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. In this year conference, we are extending the scope of the research and educational track to include other dynamic languages, not only Smalltalk. In this call, we invite research papers
that report on original scientific research conducted in and/or for Smalltalk and Dynamic Languages 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. Language Engineering, Extensions. Model Driven Engineering / Development. Meta-Modeling. Programming in the Large, Design, Architectures and Components. Programming Environments, Browsers, User Interfaces, UI Frameworks. Reasoning About Code (Analysis, Refactoring, Type Inference, Metrics). Reflection and Meta-programming. Team Management. Testing, Extreme Programming / Practices. Web Services, Internet Applications, Event-driven Programming. Experience Reports.
