EuroPLoP is the premier European conference on patterns and pattern languages.
EuroPLoP focuses on giving and receiving feedback. Instead of presenting your paper at the conference, other participants will discuss your paper at the conference in a so-called Writers’ Workshops to provide you high quality feedback for improving your publication:
– Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceeding Series
– Accepted papers qualify for a submission to the Springer journal LNCS Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (TPLoP).
CALL FOR PATTERN PAPERS
We encourage submitting pattern papers on software-related topics, as well as on other topics. We particularly welcome submissions on the following aspects of software theory and practice:
Software architecture and design
Education and collaboration
Business and organization
Agile development and coaching
Software quality and verification
Safety and security
Web development and cloud computing
EuroPLoP accepts papers containing patterns or pattern languages, as well as papers related to the theory and use of patterns. EuroPLoP also accepts excerpts from PhD theses or book projects. In the past, many book authors submitted parts of their work to get feedback from the pattern community.
CALL FOR PAPERS ON APPLYING AND IDENTIFYING PATTERNS
In addition to papers containing new patterns and pattern languages, we encourage submitting papers describing the application of existing patterns in industrial projects.
– Reports on using patterns in projects, education and organizations
– Scientific studies on patterns and pattern applications
– Papers that present theoretical arguments about patterns
– Empirical evaluations of patterns and pattern languages
CALL FOR FOCUS GROUPS
EuroPLoP also welcomes focus group proposals. Focus groups are 1-2 hour workshop sessions where you present or elaborate a pattern-related topic. You can also propose and experiment with other session formats (e.g. fishbowls, collaboration sheets, six thinking hats). For your submission, please state shortly how you will organize your session, how much time is needed, and how many participants are required. Our focus group chair will support you in organizing and planning your focus group.
ACM single column format (if you want to publish your paper with ACM).
Any format you like (if you don’t want to publish your paper with ACM).
You submissions should be at most 10 pages, but we especially welcome papers shorter than that. It is also possible to submit papers longer than 10 pages, but we discourage you from doing that, because for very long papers it will, due to time reasons, not be possible to discuss all parts of the paper during the Writer’s Workshops at the conference in detail.
After the initial submission, your paper will be assigned to a shepherd, who is an experienced pattern author. This shepherd will provide you suggestions, which you can use to improve your paper. You’ll then submit an improved version of your paper, which will then be reviewed. All accepted papers will be discussed in Writer’s Workshops during the conference.
