Recommended reading before the conference

Writers’ Workshops & the Work of Making of Things by Richard Gabriel

Writers’ Workshop

The core of GuruPLoP is a series of Writers’ Workshops where authors work together to improve their papers.

Before patterns or other papers are accepted for a Writers’ Workshop, they are shepherded. This means that an experienced author will discuss your submission with you, so that you can refine your paper prior to the conference.

After shepherding, all submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be discussed
at the conference in a Writers’ Workshop.

After the conference, you refine your paper with the additional feedback from the workshop and then
submit the camera-ready version for the proceedings.


Workshop Leader: Rebecca Rikner & Maria Kavanagh
Requirement: All participants should have read all the presented papers in advance and come prepared.
