OOPSLA 2009 Mini PLoP


This workshop will bring together authors of papers in software development who wish to experience a writers’ workshop of collaborative peers. The goal of the workshop is to provide useful feedback for authors and to share insights into problems that are encountered over and over again in software development. 

How to Prepare 

Mini PLoP will be done in a writer's workshop format. This means all attendees should come prepared. Preparation begins before we arrive by reading the papers. .

In general the writer's workshop will be handled using the Richard Gabriel Writers' Workshop Style.
