*Objective and Motivation*

Asian Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs (AsianPLoP) will
take place at the second 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

AsianPLoP 2011 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.
 Papers that explore theories, techniques, applications, tools and
 case studies in patterns and related areas such as agile
 developments are also welcome.

* 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.

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
because papers are considered to be included in a post-proceedings on
ACM Digital Library (pending).

Please submit your paper (in PDF) via the following submission site
by the due date. Submission site will be opened soon.

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. These papers will
also be included in a post-proceedings archived at ACM Digital Library

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