The Shepherding and Reviewing Process
Pattern submissions to EuroPLoP™ are not
just reviewed, instead they are shepherded. This means that an experienced
and non-anonymous person will help you improve your work prior to EuroPLoP™
so that it can be accepted for review at the conference. After the shepherding
process the program committee decides whether an accepted paper is workshopped
in a Writer's Workshop or in a Pattern Writing Workshop.
Focus group submissions are anonymously peer reviewed as for other conferences.
The Publication Process
All patterns accepted for EuroPLoP™ will
appear in the Preliminary Conference Proceedings. These proceedings are
an internal paper and are not citable. However, they are available via
the World Wide Web. After the conference we will collect updated versions
of accepted writers' workshop papers and these will be published in a Final
Conference Proceedings - a citeable publication.
Note that the proceedings will not be published as a part of the Software
Patterns Series as with the PLoPD books. However, being workshoped at a
conference such as EuroPLoP™ is one of
the preconditions for publication in the Software Pattern Series. Pattern
authors retain full copyright on their patterns.
