Patterns represent practical experience and best practices, and EuroPLoP is the premier
European conference on patterns and pattern languages.
- Authors gain visibility by publishing patterns and get active, high-quality feedback
that can significantly improve their pattern writing and daily activities.
- Practitioners enlarge their network and increase visibility at EuroPLoP by meeting leading
experts and practitioners, and getting feedback.
- Academics gain from EuroPLoP’s intensive process of shepherding, reviews, and peer
discussions at Writers’ Workshops which will yield a high-quality publication:
* Accepted papers will be published in the ACM ICPS
* Further elaborated accepted papers qualify for submission to the Springer journal LNCS
Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (TPLoP).
- Participants may keep up-to-date with contemporary movements in software engineering and
related topics, with in-depth discussions during EuroPLoP’s Writers’ Workshops.


We encourage submitting pattern papers on software-related topics, as well as other topics.
We particularly welcome submissions on the following topics (theory and practice):
* (Continuous) software engineering
* Software & systems architecture and design
* HCI design and architecture
* Cloud, fog, edge computing
* Agile and DevOps
* Business and organization
* Software quality and verification
* Requirements engineering
* Cyberphysical systems & (I)IoT
* Safety, security, dependability
* Digital transformation, Industry 4.x
* Education and collaboration
* Interdisciplinary topics

Feel free to suggest additional topic tracks if the ones above do not fit your research.
Email the program chair before December 31, 2018. EuroPLoP accepts papers containing patterns
or pattern languages, as well as papers related to the theory and the practical application
of patterns. EuroPLoP also accepts excerpts from Ph.D. theses or book projects. In the past,
many book authors have submitted parts of their work to get feedback from the pattern community.

Submission deadline: Feb. 4, 2019


In addition to papers containing new patterns and pattern languages, we encourage submitting
papers on the application of existing patterns in industrial projects. Please submit:
* Reports on using patterns in projects, education or organizations
* Academic studies on patterns and pattern application
* Papers that present theoretical arguments about patterns
* Empirical evaluations of patterns and pattern languages

Submission deadline: Feb. 18, 2019


EuroPLoP also welcomes focus group proposals. Focus groups are 1 to 2 hours workshop
sessions where you present or elaborate a pattern-related topic. You can also propose
and experiment with other session formats. Your submission should briefly sketch how
you will organize your session, its time budget, and the required number of participants.

Submission deadline: May 1, 2019


* The recommended format is ACM two column format, but not mandatory.
* For logistical reasons, we recommend submissions of 10 pages or less, and we especially
welcome shorter papers. Longer papers are possible but bear in mind that in that case,
the Writers’ Workshop might decide to focus on only a part of your paper.
* After submission, your paper will be assigned to a shepherd. This is an experienced
pattern author, who will provide feedback and suggestions on how to improve your paper.
After shepherding, re-submit your improved paper for review. All accepted papers will
be discussed in Writers’ Workshops during the conference.
* You can find this and more details at

Submission at


- High-quality feedback: All submissions will benefit from an iterative shepherding process
prior to the conference: an experienced pattern author will give you feedback and suggestions
on how to improve your paper. In Writers’ Workshops. – the core of the conference - peers and
experts will discuss your paper. You will receive in-depth, constructive feedback and insights
to improve your paper further. If you wish, you may introduce your contribution to the
Writers’ Workshop with alternative media (e.g., short video clips) to get feedback on that
format as well.
- Share and learn: Patterns are an effective way to share knowledge about a domain. The
interdisciplinary topics of the conference will provide you with new insights and inspiring
ideas from other fields.
- Theory and practice: EuroPLoP, with its creative and constructive atmosphere, attracts
participants from both industry and academia. You will be part of a unique community of
thought-leading people such as pattern book authors, researchers, and practitioners.

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions!
