PLoP: The International Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs
Pattern Languages of Programs (PLoP™) conference is a premier event for pattern authors and pattern enthusiasts to gather, discuss and learn more about patterns and software development.
Authors and non-authors will find in the different PLoP activities (Writers' Workshops, Focus Groups, BoF sessions, BootCamp, Games) many opportunities to learn more about patterns and pattern writing.
As a whole, the conference provides a friendly and effective environment to give and get feedback, to share expertise, and to allow the participants to improve their patterns and make them more useful and more publishable.
Call For Submissions
The purpose of PLoP is to promote development of pattern languages on all aspects of software, including design and programming, software architecture, user interface design, domain modeling, software processes, project management, and more.
Paper submissions may include short papers, containing one or more patterns, longer pattern languages or sequences, or work-in-progress papers willing to get an in-depth shepherding by an experienced pattern author at the conference.
In addition, you can submit proposals for free-format discussion groups or workshops aimed at bringing together people interested in a hot topic related to patterns or proven practices, for a period of about two hours. Proposals addressing interdisciplinary topics and topics from other domains than software development are especially encouraged. Non-conventional formats are welcome.
Any other suggestions or proposals for activities are welcome and encouraged. Please contact the chairs with your ideas.
PLoP13 submissions are peer reviewed and digitally archived at ACM. Papers discussed at writer's workshop at this conference qualify for submission to the journal "TPLoP - Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming" published by Springer. See Springer's pages on TPLoP for details of this journal.
