EuroPLoP
European Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

EuroPLoP is a conference that explores, develops and celebrates patterns in software. As with PLoP in the US, the main focus of EuroPLoP will be a series of writer's workshops where pattern authors work together to improve their patterns. In addition to these workshops there will be discussion groups, BOF sessions and working groups (similar to the Hot Topics at ChiliPLoP), as well as time for games and relaxation.

All the EuroPLoPs to date have been held at Kloster Irsee - a former Benedictine monastery in the heart of Bavaria, Germany. Its history can be traced back to the 12th century, and the buildings we see today were erected in the beginning of the 18th century. This beautiful and tranquil setting greatly contributes to the unique EuroPLoP atmosphere.

Southwestern Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

Why ChiliPLoP?

You keep hearing, "ChiliPLoP: A different kind of PLoP." Different how?

Well, we could start with a list of the hot topics and their cool contributors, or the unique opportunity for those new to the patterns community to get some real experience in finding and writing patterns. We could do that, yes, and perhaps you would glean from those descriptions that it is indeed something different. But that wouldn't begin to capture that ChiliPLoP is different not just in its content, but in its entirety. Several of us had the opportunity to visit the site of ChiliPLoP '98 at the Wickenburg Inn in Arizona, and we're very excited about what the entire conference has to offer the patterns community. An environment of creativity and relaxed intensity is what ChiliPLoP has to offer, along with experiences that will entice you to return again and again.

Carefree, Arizona

Pattern Languages of Programs

Jump to this year's PLoP page

Pattern Languages of Programs (PLoP®) events are opportunities for pattern authors to have their pattern languages critically reviewed by fellow authors. This criticism is offered in the form of Writer's Workshops. This feedback allows the participants to improve their patterns to make them more useful or more publishable.

There is no guaranteed publication associated with the review of a pattern language at PLoP®. In the past, selected papers have appeared in the Pattern Language of Programs Design (PLoPD) series. Each pattern paper that is reviewed at PLoP® can be placed in a pool that will be used to draw from to populate future PLOPD books.
