Call for Papers

You can find details about the conference on the PLoP’s main website.

PLoP promotes 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. As well as software patterns, we encourage patterns about collaboration, education, and creativity in broader sense toward better quality of work and life.

Paper submissions may include short papers containing one or more patterns, longer pattern languages or sequences, or works-in-progress by writers wishing to get in-depth shepherding by an experienced author at the conference. Patterns and pattern languages on other topics, essays on patterns, and visions for the future are encouraged.

In addition, you may submit proposals for free-format discussion groups or workshops bringing together people interested in a hot topic related to patterns or proven practices—with a duration about two hours. Non-conventional formats are welcome. Suggestions or proposals for activities are welcome and encouraged. Please contact the chairs with your ideas.

PLoP17 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.
