Patterns represent practical experience and best practices, and EuroPLoP is the premier

European conference on patterns and pattern languages.

– Authors gain visibility by publishing patterns and get active, high-quality feedback

that can significantly improve their pattern writing and daily activities.

– Practitioners enlarge their network and increase visibility at EuroPLoP by meeting leading

experts and practitioners, and getting feedback.

– Academics gain from EuroPLoP’s intensive process of shepherding, reviews, and peer

discussions at Writers’ Workshops which will yield a high-quality publication:

* Accepted papers will be published in the ACM ICPS

* Further elaborated accepted papers qualify for submission to the Springer journal LNCS

Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (TPLoP).

– Participants may keep up-to-date with contemporary movements in software engineering and

related topics, with in-depth discussions during EuroPLoP’s Writers’ Workshops.



We encourage submitting pattern papers on software-related topics, as well as other topics.

We particularly welcome submissions on the following topics (theory and practice):

* (Continuous) software engineering

* Software & systems architecture and design

* HCI design and architecture

* Cloud, fog, edge computing

* Agile and DevOps

* Business and organization

* Software quality and verification

* Requirements engineering

* Cyberphysical systems & (I)IoT

* Safety, security, dependability

* Digital transformation, Industry 4.x

* Education and collaboration

* Interdisciplinary topics

Feel free to suggest additional topic tracks if the ones above do not fit your research.

Email the program chair before December 31, 2018. EuroPLoP accepts papers containing patterns

or pattern languages, as well as papers related to the theory and the practical application

of patterns. EuroPLoP also accepts excerpts from Ph.D. theses or book projects. In the past,

many book authors have submitted parts of their work to get feedback from the pattern community.

Submission deadline: Feb. 4, 2019



In addition to papers containing new patterns and pattern languages, we encourage submitting

papers on the application of existing patterns in industrial projects. Please submit:

* Reports on using patterns in projects, education or organizations

* Academic studies on patterns and pattern application

* Papers that present theoretical arguments about patterns

* Empirical evaluations of patterns and pattern languages

Submission deadline: Feb. 18, 2019



EuroPLoP also welcomes focus group proposals. Focus groups are 1 to 2 hours workshop

sessions where you present or elaborate a pattern-related topic. You can also propose

and experiment with other session formats. Your submission should briefly sketch how

you will organize your session, its time budget, and the required number of participants.

Submission deadline: May 1, 2019



* The recommended format is ACM two column format, but not mandatory.

* For logistical reasons, we recommend submissions of 10 pages or less, and we especially

welcome shorter papers. Longer papers are possible but bear in mind that in that case,

the Writers’ Workshop might decide to focus on only a part of your paper.

* After submission, your paper will be assigned to a shepherd. This is an experienced

pattern author, who will provide feedback and suggestions on how to improve your paper.

After shepherding, re-submit your improved paper for review. All accepted papers will

be discussed in Writers’ Workshops during the conference.

* You can find this and more details at

– High-quality feedback: All submissions will benefit from an iterative shepherding process

prior to the conference: an experienced pattern author will give you feedback and suggestions

on how to improve your paper. In Writers’ Workshops. – the core of the conference – peers and

experts will discuss your paper. You will receive in-depth, constructive feedback and insights

to improve your paper further. If you wish, you may introduce your contribution to the

Writers’ Workshop with alternative media (e.g., short video clips) to get feedback on that

format as well.

– Share and learn: Patterns are an effective way to share knowledge about a domain. The

interdisciplinary topics of the conference will provide you with new insights and inspiring

ideas from other fields.

– Theory and practice: EuroPLoP, with its creative and constructive atmosphere, attracts

participants from both industry and academia. You will be part of a unique community of

thought-leading people such as pattern book authors, researchers, and practitioners.

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions!
