This year, EuroPLoP 2020 can not be held at Kloster Irsee, due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, it will be held as an online conference using video conferencing tools to do the writers' workshops, which are the core of the conference.
This crisis demands much from everyone of us. We see it as our responsibility to give the authors the possibility to still be able to publish their work without sacrificing the high quality standard which we demand for the conference.
This means that the shepherding will continue as usual, and all the deadlines are still valid. The authors will still get plenty of feedback and tips for improvements, and also the quality requirements which we demand for the EuroPLoP conference are still valid.
Therefore, accepted papers, that went through the writers’ workshops and improved the quality of their work over multiple iterations after receiving feedback from their shepherd and the community, will be invited as usual to be published in our ACM proceedings.
