Why come to EuroPLoP 2023?
Patterns represent practical experience and best practices, and
EuroPLoP is the premier European conference on patterns and pattern

- Authors gain visibility by publishing patterns and get active,
high-quality feedback that can significantly improve their pattern
writing and daily activities.
- Practitioners enlarge their network and increase visibility at EuroPLoP
by meeting leading experts and practitioners, and getting
- Academics gain from EuroPLoP's intensive process of shepherding, reviews,
and peer discussions at Writers’ Workshops which will yield a high-quality
* Accepted papers to be published in the ACM ICPS (pending confirmation)
* Further elaborated accepted papers qualify for submission to the
Springer journal LNCS Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming
- Participants keep up-to-date with contemporary movements in software
engineering and related topics, with in-depth discussions during
EuroPLoP's Writers' Workshops.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM ICPS. Further elaborated
accepted papers qualify for submission to the Springer journal LNCS
Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming (TPLoP).

Call for Pattern Papers and Focus Group Proposals
The EuroPLoP conference accepts papers on patterns, pattern languages,
their theory, and their practical application. It focuses on topics
related to computing, including software engineering, programming,
design, education, organizational, and management topics. EuroPLoP is
open for synergies with other fields and therefore accepts up to 20%
of pattern papers on non-computing topics.

The writers’ workshops will focus on the following tracks*:

A. Software/Systems Engineering, Classical Software Design Patterns
- Patterns in software and systems architecture, design & implementation
- Patterns in Human-computer-interface (HCI) design and architecture
- Patterns for improving software quality and software verification
- Reports, studies, or empirical evaluations of using patterns and
pattern languages
B. Modern Development and Operations Paradigms
- Patterns in agile processes, e.g., XP, Scrum, DevOps, CI/CD
- Patterns in API Design & Management, Microservices, SOA, Serverless
- Patterns in Domain Driven Design (DDD), Model-driven Development & Eng.
C. Patterns in Business, Organization, Innovation, and Requirements Eng.
- Patterns for business, organization, requirements engineering, and
process management
- Patterns for design thinking / lateral thinking, innovation processes,
and creativity
- Patterns for transformations of corporate processes and alternative
business cultures.
D. Education and Learning Patterns
- Patterns in education, collaboration, and interdisciplinary topics
- Reports of using patterns in education
- Gamification patterns
E. Patterns in the Internet of Things / Cyber-Physical-Systems
- Patterns in (Industrial) IoT, Cyber-Physical-Systems, embedded devices,
control systems
- Hardware/Software Co-Design patterns
- Patterns about safety, security, reliability, or dependability
- Patterns for cloud, fog, edge, embedded environments and isomorphic
F. Patterns in Emerging Topics
- Hyper-automation, robotic process automation, digital transformation,
Industry 4.0 patterns
- Blockchain, smart contracts and decentralized systems patterns
- Patterns for AI and machine learning
- Patterns for virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, and
immersive applications
- Patterns for multi-experience environments, people-centric smart spaces
G. Meta Topics
- Theoretical arguments about patterns
- Empirical evaluations of patterns and pattern languages

*) The exact assignment of topics to writers workshops may change due
to balancing reasons

Paper Submission Process
The submission runs through three quality gates before the final
proceedings will be published. After the first draft is accepted, your
paper will be assigned to a shepherd. This is an experienced pattern
author, who will provide feedback and suggestions on how to improve
your paper. Following several iterations of shepherding, your improved
second draft will be reviewed again and accepted or rejected for the
conference. On acceptance, your paper will be discussed in the
writers’ workshop during the conference. Based on the feedback
received during the workshops, you must submit a final revised version
that will be published. The submission system is available under

Paper Submission Format
The final submission for publication must be formatted using the
single-column ACM primary article template, but for the drafts and
intermediate versions, you can use any format. However, we encourage
you to use the ACM format right from the beginning to avoid layout
problems in the end. If you don’t intend to publish with ACM, you can
choose whatever format you like. We recommend 10 pages as a guideline
and especially welcome shorter papers. Longer papers are also possible
but bear in mind that the writers’ workshop might decide to focus only
on a part of your paper. Have a look at the introductory information
pack for examples.

Focus Group Proposals
Do you have a pattern-related topic with the potential to spark a
discussion? Focus Groups at EuroPLoP are an excellent opportunity to
collaborate with other passionate pattern writers. They are 1 to 2 hour
sessions, usually workshops, but you are welcome to experiment with
different formats. Your submission should include a summary of the topic,
outcomes you envision, a brief description of how you will organize the
session, its time budget, and the required number of participants."

EuroPLoP values
High-quality feedback
All submissions will benefit from an iterative shepherding process
prior to the conference: an experienced pattern author will give you
feedback and suggestions on how to improve your paper. In Writers’
Workshops – the core of the conference – peers and experts will
discuss your paper. You will receive in-depth, constructive feedback
and insights to improve your paper further. If you wish, you may
complement your paper with alternative media (e.g., short video clips
linked from the paper) to get feedback on that format as well.

Share and learn
Patterns are an effective way to share knowledge about a domain. The
interdisciplinary topics of the conference will provide you with new
insights and inspiring ideas from other fields.

Theory and practice
EuroPLoP, with its creative and constructive atmosphere, attracts
participants from both industry and academia. You will be part of a
unique community of pattern book authors, researchers, and
