For the 10th consecutive year, the European Smalltalk User Group is organizing a Smalltalk Conference to bring together Smalltalk users from both academia and industry in a friendly atmosphere. As always, the attendents will enjoy tutorials, workshops and demonstrations on various Smalltalk related subjects. Continuing a strong tradition in organizing Smalltalk events for Smalltalk practicioners, this year promises to be very exciting.

ESUG organizes a Smalltalk Joint Event comprised of: Camp Smalltalk, Smalltalk Conference, a Free Software Day, a Teachers Forum and Smalltalk Doctoral Symposium!

This year:

All these exciting events will take place in the last week of August, at the Ecole des Mines de Douai in Douai, France (1h30 away from Brussels by car and 1h10 away from Paris by train). The Conference takes place at Douai in France. Early information can be found at or at

As always, we cannot make this work without contributions from the actual Smalltalk practioners. Therefore we invite people to submit proposals to present papers (both academic or industrial, technical or experience report), or to exhibit. Together with invited speakers and Campers this promises to be another exciting Smalltalk event.


Prospective speakers must clearly explain the format they would like to use (tutorial, experience report, workshop or demo). Each proposal must include an abstract of around 200 words. All proposals should be sent to Stephane Ducasse ( AND Roel Wuyts (, in plain ASCII pasted in the body of the e-mail (NOT attached).

We will make a ESUG Smalltalk Conference Web Site, containing the
abstracts and the slides of the talks presented during the Conference.

Hot topics include, but are not limited to,
