If you're looking for a place to show off certain new developments,
you might be interested in the following venue (attached).
Do we have somebody in this beautiful part of the world?

And if you are looking for something to read on the long plane trip from
Europe to Argentina, look no further: Andres' new book "Fundamentals
of Smalltalk Programming Technique" will keep you entertained and busy 
even on the return trip. It's available via lulu:

Argentina's third Smalltalk conference, Smalltalks 2009, will be held
from November 19th through November 21rd at the Facultad de Ciencias
Exactas y Naturales (FCEyN), Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA).

All those connected with Smalltalk, be it faculty, students,
researchers, developers or entrepreneurs, are invited to participate,
free of cost, as presenters and members of the audience.  The
organization committee will announce the registration website shortly.

The conference's goal is to gather both the Argentine and International
Smalltalk community to get connected sharing our work and experience
with regards to Smalltalk or related topics.  Smalltalks 2009
presentations will be divided between the "Industry and Development" and
"Research and Education" categories.  In addition, the event will host a
Smalltalk programming contest.  As in other editions, well known
personalities from the international community will attend the conference.

The "Research and Education" category is the best match for research and
education work done with Smalltalk in universities and public or private
entities.  The "Industry and Development" category is suitable for
presentations related to Smalltalk software developed by companies or
individuals, both public and private.

A list of suggested presentation topics, not exclusive, is below:

* Development tools.
* Development with prototypes.
* Model driven development.
* Agile practices (XP, TDD, etc).
* Web application development.
* Metamodeling / metaprogramming.
* New frameworks or models.
* Materials for education.
* Embedded systems and robotics.
* SOA and web services.
* Experience reports, both development and research.
* Commercial systems.
* Automation and best testing practices.
* Interoperability with other technologies.
* Best design and architecture practices.

Interested presenters should keep in mind the following deadline schedule.

1.  You must present a summary of the proposed presentation no later
than Monday, October 19th, 2009.  The summary must fit on a single page,
and must include a description, objective, and category of the work to
be shown.  The submission procedure will be announced shortly.

2.  The conference's program committee will select the event's
presentations from the proposals submitted according to the above
procedure by Monday, October 26th.  The proposals including dynamic
examples as opposed to just static presentations will be given priority.

3.  The conference schedule will be published in the conference's
website on Wednesday, October 28th.

4.  The conference's works and presentations will be published in the
conference's website after the conference.

Those interested in the coding contest can become familiarized with it
at the smalltalks-2009-coding-contest Google group:


The contest's goal is to have a good time solving a problem in
Smalltalk, and win a prize while at it.  We are working hard to ensure
everyone can participate, and we will show examples and prototypes that
can be improved by the participants.
