AsianPLoP is a PLoP ® Conference sanctioned by the Hillside Group.
Style and Submission
Paper submissions may include short papers (e.g. 1 page), containing one or more patterns, longer pattern languages or sequences (e.g. 10 pages), or work-in-progress papers willing to get an in-depth shepherding by an experienced pattern author at the conference.
AsianPLoP 2014 solicits paper submissions written in both of English and Japanese; English papers and Japanese ones will be discussed in different sessions.
There is no specific paper format; however the ACM conference format is recommended because papers are considered to be included in a post-proceedings on ACM Digital Library after the conference (TBD).
After submission, papers will be peer-reviewed to be accepted for the shepherding process. During shepherding, authors will have assigned a shepherd that will help the author to improve the content and style of the paper. At the end of the shepherding process, papers will be peer-reviewed again to be accepted into the Writers' Workshops of the conference.
All authors should submit through EasyChair submission system. If you already have an EasyChair account from another conference, you can use that account to submit a paper to AsianPLoP 2014. If you have not used EasyChair Conference System before, click "sign up for an account" for instructions on how to setup an EasyChair account.
Accepted papers of the workshop will be published in the workshop on-line proceedings. Please note that at least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the conference to have the paper published in the conference on-line proceedings.
Papers will be included in a post-proceedings archived at ACM Digital Library (pending).
Papers discussed at Writers Workshop qualify for submission to the journal "TPLoP - Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming" published by Springer.
