Patterns are good solutions to problems reoccurring in certain contexts
while anti-patterns are the contrary, i.e., common poor practices.
Now, it has been almost two decades since design patterns
[Gamma et al., 1994] and anti-patterns [Koenig, 1995] were introduced
in the domain of software engineering. Since then, there has been
a tremendous number of works mainly on the definition, detection,
application, and impact of design patterns and anti-patterns.
These works built a well-established topic of research and
a foundation for new families of patterns and anti-patterns.

The goal of the workshop is to promote the application of patterns and
prevent the spread of anti-patterns. For the second edition, the aim is
to understand to what extent practitioners benefit from the concepts of
patterns and anti-patterns and the existing catalogs. In fact, patterns are
widely studied in the research community to asses their benefit for
program comprehension, maintenance, and more generally the quality of
the software. In addition, many researchers studied to what extent
anti-patterns can negatively impact the different software activities and
software quality. However, limited feedback exist on how practitioners
benefit from the existing body of research on patterns and anti-patterns.
Thus, the second edition of PPAP aims at providing a platform for
practitioners and researchers to exchange experiences and needs.

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit research papers,
position papers, experience reports, and discussion papers.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- identifying show-stoppers that prevent to adopt patterns or
refactor from anti-patterns;
- impact on software quality, testing;
- identifying needs for new families of patterns (anti-patterns);
- defining new patterns/anti-patterns;
- enriching existing patterns/anti-patterns;
- empirical studies;
- evolution.

Paper Format:
Papers should not exceed 4 pages. All papers should be submitted
as PDF file following the IEEE two-column proceedings format:
