Software developers have long observed that certain patterns recur and endure across different applications and systems. 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 MiniPLoP 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.

MiniPLoP brings together students, 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.

This version of MiniPLoP has the goal to encourage the beginners in the pattern world and to put together the Latin-american pattern community. The MiniPLoP program will accept submissions for the Writers’ Workshop (WW) track. The papers should document patterns or pattern languages and they will be workshopped in the traditional PLoP format. The authors will have the opportunity to improve their work based on the feedback obtained from MiniPLoP. The idea is to encourage authors to submit more mature versions of the their MiniPLoP papers to SugarLoafPLoP or other PloP conference.

The MiniPLoP’2011 program will include an introduction to pattern writing (bootcamp), an international tutorial, an international keynote, and the writers? workshops.

  • Writers’ Workshop (WW)
    There has been a recognition that the writers? workshop process is beneficial for the production of high quality papers ever since the first patterns conference or PLoP was held in 1994. Attendees will participate in a writers? workshop of their paper as well as writers? workshops for papers of other attendees in their group. Participants who do not have a paper to workshop are also invited. Everyone will be expected to read all the papers in their groups in advance.

The MiniPLoP experience provides something different, but needed, in the patterns community ? a “bootcamp” for newcomers. This section provides an introduction to patterns: a training, mentoring, experiencing activity, where participants will be immersed in patterns and emerge with an enlarged perspective and an ability to get more out of all PLoPs conferences. The section format consists of a variety of lecture, discussion, group pattern writing, game playing, and writers’ workshop - not necessarily in that order.

Papers can be written in English (preferred), Portuguese, or Spanish and must conform to the SBC (Brazilian Computer Society) style that is available in the conference web site. Submissions should be in PDF format.
