STIC 2012 Call For Participation

The Smalltalk Industry Conference (previously known as Smalltalk Solutions) 2012 Call For Participation is now out. The web site appears to be in a poor state right now, so pasting the whole thing here.


Smalltalk Solutions is now called STIC – Smalltalk Industry Conference.

STIC is a forum where Smalltalk professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts can meet and share ideas and experiences. We are currently accepting proposals for talks involving Smalltalk technology and other areas of innovation in the software industry. We're looking forward to an excellent conference, and need your participation to maintain the high technical level of the conference!

The conference will take place in Biloxi, Mississippi, March 19 – 21, 2012.
Presentations will have 45 minutes time slots including discussion. They may be in the form of
  • Technical Presentations
  • Experience Reports
  • Technology Demonstrations
  • Panel Discussions
  • Workshops
  • ...
Proposals should be submitted by email to STS_Speakers@stic.st and should include the following information:
  • Name
  • Contact Information
  • Type of Presentation
  • Title of Presentation
  • Brief Abstract
  • Short Biography of the Presenter(s)
  • Any constraints on date/time
  • Any other information of importance in evaluating the proposal
If you cannot discuss the internal application you are working on because of corporate restrictions, perhaps you can discuss the application's component usage or development process. We will also be reserving time for short presentations, of the form of Lightning Talks and (very) short technology demonstrations, but these will be available for sign-up at the conference rather than as advance proposals.
Submissions should be received by December 15, 2011. Note that submissions with incomplete information may be rejected - particularly if bio or abstract information is missing.

Presenters will qualify for a significantly discounted registration. This year that will be $200 US, or $160 US for STIC members.
