ParaPLoP 2009, a PLoP-style workshop on parallel programming patterns to be held on June 3-5 in Santa Cruz, Calif., has opened invitations for paper submissions. Papers can describe one or more patterns, outline a pattern language, analyze previously published patterns, describe case studies of using patterns to develop parallel software, or present experience mining patterns from significant parallel code implementations.
Like PLoP, ParaPLoP will be organized as a set of writer's workshops. Moreover, submissions will usually be revised before they are accepted. Each submission will be assigned to a shepherd, who will help the author make revisions to increase the likelihood of acceptance. The submission site will be open February 15, and the last date for submission will be April 18. Papers should be less than 15 pages. The only exceptions will be papers on pattern languages, in which case the authors will need to select a subsection small enough to review.
