Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The Nordic pattern conference VikingPLoP is an excellent venue to meet pattern experts and to exchange knowledge about patterns. The conference helps you to learn more about patterns, to receive feedback on your own work, and to discuss with fellow pattern enthusiasts. We especially encourage new-comers and non-academic pattern enthusiasts to participate in the conference. Open and supportive atmosphere makes VikingPLoP a great opportunity to get familiar with patterns and patterns community. VikingPLoP 2014 has an emphasis on embedded systems and thus submission of papers on embedded system patterns are especially encouraged.

VikingPLoP 2014 will be held from 10th to 13th of April 2014 in Sagadi manor, Vihula, Estonia. The Sagadi manor has been entertaining guests for centuries. The manor is nationally recognized as an architectural monument and provides an entity which has exceptionally well withstood time. The surroundings of the manor offer natural beauty including a spectacular forest, the trails of Lahemaa national park and river Altja with overwhelming sights.

The core of VikingPLoP is a series of writers' workshops where authors work together to improve their papers. Before patterns or other papers are accepted for a writers' workshop, they are shepherded. This means that an experienced author will discuss your submission with you, so that you can refine your paper prior to the conference. After shepherding, all submissions will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be discussed at the conference in a writers' workshop. After the conference, you refine your paper with the additional feedback from the workshop and then submit the camera-ready version for the proceedings. Submitting a paper to VikingPLoP gives you a good opportunity to get intensive feedback and other opinions on their work through shepherding and through the writers' workshops.


VikingPLoP accepts papers containing patterns or pattern languages as well as experience reports and papers related to the theory and use of patterns. Papers submitted to VikingPLoP cover a wide range of subjects, from technical issues, like C++ programming, to social and organizational issues. VikingPLoP 2014 especially welcomes pattern papers on embedded systems. The submitted papers should contain one or more patterns maximum number of pages being 10. However, we are not particularly strict on this limit and longer pattern languages or sequences and work-in-progress papers will also be considered for inclusion. Papers should follow LNCS format guidelines. All accepted papers will be published in proceedings which will be part of Tampere
University of Technology report series. Papers that have been in writer's workshop at VikingPLoP qualify for a submission to the Springer journal LNCS Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (TPLoP).
