Pattern Languages of Programs conferences
The PLoP conferences are software patterns industry conferences organised by the Hillside Group. The first PLoP conference was held in 1994 following the first meeting of the Group.
The purpose of PLoP is to promote development of pattern languages on all aspects of software, including design and programming, software architecture, user interface design, domain modeling, software processes, project management, and more.
Many conference proceedings are published in the Software Patterns Series of Pattern Languages of Program Design books.
The journal Transactions on Pattern Languages of Programming publishes papers which have been workshopped and reviewed at PLoP conferences.
