*Objective and Motivation*

Asian Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs (AsianPLoP) will
take place at the first time, as a premier event for pattern authors
and users to gather, discuss and learn more about patterns and software
development in the Asia region as well as other regions. The purpose of
AsianPLoP is to promote development of patterns, pattern languages,
technologies and experiences of patterns primarily about software;
however, these for domains outside software are also welcome.

AsianPLoP 2010 solicits paper submissions written in both of English and
Japanese; English papers and Japanese ones will be discussed in different
sessions. Both practitioners from the industry and academics are invited
to submit their papers. The conference solicits the papers for the
following different sessions.

* Writers' Workshop - papers that document patterns and pattern languages
  will be workshopped in the traditional PLoP format.
* Technology Workshop - papers that explore theories, techniques,
  applications, tools and case studies in patterns and related areas such
  as agile developments.
* Writing Group - papers of newcomers who want to learn how to better
  elaborate an idea intended to evolve to a pattern or pattern language.
  This is more like a hands-on tutorial on writing patterns.

Thanks to our sponsors and supporters that the participation fee is
completely free for all of authors and attendants.

The invited speaker of AsianPLoP is Joshua Kerievsky, who is an author of
a Jolt Productivity awarded book "Refactoring to Patterns". He is a
founder and CEO of Industrial Logic, Inc., and a pioneer of Industrial XP.
He is also a senior consultant with Cutter Consortium's Agile Software
Development and Project Management practice.

AsianPLoP is a PLoP(R) Conference sanctioned by the Hillside Group.

*Paper Submission*

Paper submissions may include short papers (e.g. 1 page), containing
one or more patterns, longer pattern languages or sequences (e.g. 10
pages), or work-in-progress papers willing to get an in-depth
shepherding by an experienced pattern author at the conference.

There is no specific paper format; however the ACM conference format
( http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html ) is recommended
for papers in English because these papers are considered to be included
in a post-proceedings on ACM Digital Library (pending).

Submission site will open soon.  Please submit your paper (in PDF) via
the submission site by the due date. After submission, papers will be
peer-reviewed to be accepted for the shepherding process. During
shepherding, authors will have assigned a shepherd that will help the
author to improve the content and style of the paper. At the end of the
shepherding process, papers will be peer-reviewed again to be accepted
into the Writers' Workshops of the conference.


Accepted papers will be published in the workshop on-line proceedings
as a volume of GRACE Technical Report with ISSN. Papers in English will be
included in a post-proceedings archived at ACM Digital Library (pending).

Papers discussed at Writers Workshop qualify for submission to the
journal "TPLoP - Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming"
published by Springer.
