Papers will be reviewed
carefully and most papers are revised before they are accepted. Authors
will receive early feedback within two weeks of submission, and a final
result by August 1.
PloP is run in the “writers’ workshop” style. No more than 15 pages can be
covered in a session, so the normal size of papers is 15 pages or less.
Short papers are encouraged! Longer papers are possible, especially for
pattern languages, but authors of long papers will have to work with the
workshop leader to select a portion of the paper to be covered in the
workshop. Authors of books-in-progress who would like to have their work
reviewed at PloP should contact the program chairs.
