Software developers have long observed that certain patterns recur and endure
across different applications and systems. SugarLoafPLoP brings together
researchers, educators, and practitioners whose interests span a remarkably
broad range of topics and who share an interest in exploring the power
of the pattern form.

The growing interest in  patterns represents an effort to catalog and better
communicate knowledge, providing handbooks of proven solutions to
common problems.
The purpose of SugarLoafPLoP is to promote development of patterns and pattern
languages, primarily about aspects of software: design and programming,
testing, software architecture, user interface design, domain modeling, and
software processes. Patterns and pattern languages for domains outside software
are also welcome.

SugarLoafPLoP invites you to add your expertise to the growing corpus
of patterns.
SugarLoafPLoP focuses on improving the expression of patterns. 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.

Highlights of the conference include tutorials, invited speakers, and
workshops, all held at the beach at Salvador, Brazil, an area of great
natural and
cultural beauty.

The SugarLoafPLoP'2010 program will be divided in three different tracks:

* Writers' Workshop (WW) - papers that document patterns and pattern languages
 will be workshopped in the traditional PLoP format.

* Pattern Applications (PA) - 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.

* Writing Patterns (WP) - papers of newcomers who want to learn how to better
 elaborate an idea intended to evolve to a pattern or pattern language. This
 is more like a hands-on tutorial on writing patterns.


Paper submissions will be performed via the online JEMS system
(https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/) starting in April, 2010. Papers can be
written in English (preferred), Portuguese, or Spanish and must conform
to the SBC (Brazilian Computer Society) style that will be available in
the conference web site. Submissions should be in PDF format.

Papers published at the Writers' Workshop track of this conference are
qualified for submission to the new journal "Transactions on Pattern
Languages of
Programming" published by Springer.
