Call for papers


This year, in addition to traditional technical talks, FAST has organized a Workshop were researchers are invited to submit papers, which will be evaluated by specialized reviewers. We have chosen the Workshop format to let authors get early qualified feedback of their work without preventing them from presenting in other conferences or publications, since this format does not imply exclusive submission.

Guidelines for authors

Authors are required to also read and be familiar with the Code of Conduct.

Paper submission

You must upload your proposed paper here.

Overview of submission process

FAST WS 2022 uses a single blind review process.

Following submission, the paper will be evaluated to ensure it meets the criteria for the review process; e.g. it should be within scope and complete. Reviewers will then be assigned to read and review the manuscript. Afterwards, authors may receive indications to update their paper. Finally, the Program Committee will enter a decision, either accept as is, accept with minor revisions, or reject.


Submissions may be any length, but a paper’s length should be justified by its content, unusually long papers (not counting any Appendices) are likely to result in reviewing delays. Submissions must be PDF files generated using the FAST LaTeX stylefile and template. The submission PDF may include an Appendix, after the references (for proofs, derivations or complimentary results). Looking at the Appendix is at the discretion of the reviewers.


The objective of FAST Workshop 2022 is to encourage authors to share original papers that contribute to the understanding of the computational and mathematical principles related to or derived from Smalltalk technologies and their possibilities in the short, mid or long term.

The Program Committee invites authors to submit papers that contain

  • new algorithms with sound theoretical or empirical validation;

  • new implementations and methodologies for the development of process/language virtual machines;

  • experimental and/or theoretical studies yielding new insight into the design and development by means of dynamic languages with special emphasis in live behavior;

  • accounts of applications of existing techniques that shed light on development methodologies;

  • computational models of interest in science and mathematics;

  • new approaches for analysis, visualization, and understanding of computational systems.


Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work in a special online track of the conference. These talks will have a duration of 20' followed by a Q&A section.


Submit your work before October 14th.
