The Conference

EuroPLoP is the premier European conference on patterns and pattern languages. Design patterns are a unique and effective way to capture and share expertise, tacit knowledge and research findings.
Unlike other conferences, EuroPLoP focuses on improving papers instead of only presenting them (see shepherding). Authors will receive high quality feedback in a constructive way. The comments and suggestions can be used to improve submitted papers for final publication.
EuroPLoP is held at Kloster Irsee, Bavaria, Germany. At this fantastic venue you will experience a creative and constructive atmosphere that inspires your work. You will meet many like-minded people from both academic and industrial contexts who share a passion for outstanding designs. It’s a unique community of experts, researchers, practitioners and thought-leading people.
Our social activities are designed to build a community of experts and expand our network of academic and professional pattern enthusiasts. EuroPLoP is part of the *PLoP conference series that attracts participants from all over the world. EuroPLoP is sponsored by Hillside Europe.
We hope to be able to organize the conference on-site, but this is subject to change, considering any restrictions imposed by Covid-19. EuroPLoP's registration fee is normally 975€ and covers all activities, accomodation, and food.
