The Hillside Mission

The mission of the Hillside Group is to improve the quality of life and society as a whole. This includes architects, developers, managers, owners, workers, educators, students, and more. Understanding and helping the human element is critical for achieving success. The Hillside Group believes in making processes and design more humane by paying attention to real people and existing practices.

The Hillside Group promotes the use of patterns and pattern languages to record, analyze, and share knowledge to help achieve its mission. The Hillside Group sponsors a variety of activities to achieve this mission—organizing workshops, hosting PLoP (pattern) conferences, and producing publications for discussing, recording, and documenting successful practices.

The Hillside Group supports many different conferences such as: PLoP, EuroPLoP, AsianPLoP, VikingPLoP, SugarLoafPLoP, and ChiliPLoP. These conferences focus on writing groups to better improve patterns through group exposure. Each conference offers advanced topics for the more adept pattern writers. Participants have the opportunity to refine and extend their patterns with help from knowledgeable and sympathetic patterns enthusiasts.

Pattern Books

The Design Patterns Book Series showcases many patterns from PLoP conferences and leading experts in the patterns field.



See our Pattern Book Library filled with over 80 Pattern related books.

Dear PLoP Submitter:

Thank you for taking the risk of submitting your work to PLoP '98. We hope that your experience of having your paper reviewed for PLoP will be different from your experience with other conferences or publications. I have been assigned to your paper as a "shepherd". I have two primary responsibilities:

  1. Helping you improve your submission
2. Voting whether your submission meets PLoP's criteria for being
workshoped at the conference

Both activities go hand in hand. We're going to have several iterations over your paper where my job is to suggest you changes for improvement. Of course, it's your own decision, whether you'd like to incorporate the changes or not. However, experience shows that most remarks lead to some changes in the document--future readers will have more benefit from a clarification in the document than I will have if you explain the topic to me only. We have eigth weeks to work on the paper. We should use this time as well as we can.

During this shepherding, I collaborate with a member of the program committee. That person's job is to support me if I feel the need for a second vote. Please CC the program committee member on every mail you send to me.

Please make sure that our e-mail connection works. We're going to have a lot of traffic and a broken e-mail connection is about the worst things that can happen during this project.

After the shepherding period, I'm going to send the latest version of your paper (the "version for voting") to the program committee together with my vote on whether the paper is suitable for participation ion a writers' workshop.

However, my vote is not the only one. A second member of the program committee will vote on the version for vote independently from my vote. Depending on both votes the chairs will finally decide for acceptance. If your paper is accepted you have time to prepare the version that is going to be workshoped at the conference.

This may seem quite complicated, but I'll support you to track the dates and take care that you don't miss any deadline.

Please consult the shepherding guidelines page:

for more information on the shepherding process.
