Call for submissions PLoP 2015
22nd conference on Pattern Languages of Programs 
October 23–26, 2015—Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The Pattern Languages of Programs (PLoP™) conference is the premier event for 
pattern authors and enthusiasts to gather, discuss, and learn more about 
patterns, programming, and software development.

This year PLoP will be co-located with the SPLASH conference, in Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania. The conference is not traditional—the main event is a set of 
Writers’ Workshops where pattern papers are reviewed by fellow authors, led 
by expert workshop leaders.

Authors and everyone will find lots of opportunities to learn about
patterns, pattern languages, pattern writing, and the quest for
human-centered software creation in the panoply of PLoP activities:
Writers’ Workshops, Focus Groups, BoF sessions, BootCamp, Games,
shared meals and chit-chat.

Reinventing the past is hard to do and not what we plan. Programming,
software, and software development are changing fast. We plan to explore
where it could all go, how code will be made, what the nature of software 
design will be, how scale will infect everything, and what kinds of new 
software will emerge.


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.

PLoP15 submissions are peer reviewed and digitally archived at ACM. Papers 
discussed at writers’ 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
