logo sugarloaf 2016Llamado a presentación de trabajos: Conferencia SugarLoafPLoP 2016: “11th Latin American Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs”.

SugarLoafPLoP 2016 representa una oportunidad única dado que será la 1ra vez que se realiza en Argentina una conferencia sobre patrones de diseño, un tema que ha sido revolucionario en la historia del software. SugarLoafPLoP ha tenido 10 ediciones previas en Brasil. Además contará con la presencia de Ralph Johnson, uno de los autores del libro “Design Patterns”.

El formato de SugarLoafPLoP ofrece una experiencia única de aprendizaje y colaboración. La revisión se hace de la mano de un mentor o “shepherd” que es un experto en patrones que guía al autor para mejorar su trabajo. La conferencia se organiza como reuniones de trabajo llamadas “writers’ workshops” donde los mismos autores comentan y realizan sugerencias con el espíritu de ayudarse mutuamente a producir un mejor trabajo. El rango de áreas de interés para nuevos patrones es muy amplio. Se reciben artículos en inglés o español.

11th Latin American Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs

SugarLoaf-PLoP 2016. Tango Edition. Buenos Aires, Argentina.
16-18 November 2016
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ralph Johnson
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit papers to the 11th Latin American Conference on Pattern Languages of Programs, which will be held for the first time in Argentina.
We are glad to confirm the presence of Ralph Johnson, one of the authors of the “Design Patterns” book, as a keynote speaker. You cannot miss this opportunity of meeting a legend in the history of software patterns!
The growing interest in patterns represents an effort to catalog and better communicate knowledge, providing handbooks of proven solutions to common problems. SugarLoafPLoP brings together researchers, educators, and practitioners to discuss patterns on all aspects of software, including design and programming, software architecture, user interface design, domain modeling, software processes, project management, pedagogy and education, and more. SugarLoafPLoP invites you to add your expertise to the growing corpus of patterns.
The conference is not traditional; the main event is a set of Writers’ Workshops where you will have the opportunity to refine and extend your patterns with the help from knowledgeable and sympathetic fellow pattern enthusiasts. You will also be able to discuss applications of patterns in industry and academia. Other activities include tutorials, invited speakers, writing groups and more.
The acceptance process of a paper submitted to SugarLoafPLoP is also both original and rewarding. Each paper is assigned to a shepherd. Shepherding is an iterative process, where an experienced author discusses the submission with its authors to refine the paper prior to the conference. Following shepherding, papers may be accepted directly into a Writers’ Workshop or alternatively, into a Writing Group. Writing Group papers will receive additional face-­to-­face shepherding at the conference.

Submissions to SugarLoafPLoP’16– Tango Edition are invited in two different tracks:
  • Pattern Papers– short papers containing one or more patterns, or longer papers containing pattern languages. All accepted papers receive in-depth shepherding by an experienced pattern author before the conference. At the conference, pattern papers participate in a writers’ workshop in the traditional PLoP format.
  • Papers on Applying Patterns– regular papers that explore the use and application of patterns, such as using patterns in industry and academia, tools for using patterns, evaluation of productivity when using patterns, teaching and consulting with patterns, and so on. Both practitioners from the software industry and academics are invited to submit to this track.
Please find more details on submissions at: http://hillside.net/sugarloaf/2016/cfp/
PLoP submissions will be peer reviewed and digitally archived at ACM. Papers discussed at writers’ workshops at this conference qualify for submission to the TPLoP journal, “TPLoP—: Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming,” published by Springer.
