Objective and Motivation

A pattern is an abstracted repeatable solution to a commonly occurring problem under a certain context with forces. Patterns help people to share experience-based proven solutions and design products, manage processes, projects and organizations, and communicate each other more efficiently and effectively.

Asian Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs (AsianPLoP) will take place at the third time, as a premier event for pattern authors and users to gather, discuss and learn more about patterns and pattern languages in the Asia region as well as other regions. The purpose of AsianPLoP is to promote development of patterns, pattern languages, technologies and experiences of patterns primarily about software; however, these for domains outside software are also welcome.

AsianPLoP 2015 solicits paper submissions written in both of English and Japanese; English papers and Japanese ones will be discussed in different sessions. Both practitioners from the industry and academics are invited to submit their papers. The conference solicits the papers for the following different sessions. Details can be found in Topics and Submission.

  • Writers' Workshop - papers that document patterns and pattern languages will be workshopped in the traditional PLoP format. Papers that explore theories, techniques, applications, tools and case studies in patterns are also welcome.
  • Writing Group - papers of newcomers who want to learn how to better elaborate an idea intended to evolve to a pattern or pattern language. This is more like a hands-on tutorial on writing patterns.
