Dates for this year’s pattern languages workshop for parallel patterns have been announced. Not sure If I’ll be able to attend but it definitely looks interesting.
ParaPLoP 2010, a PLoP-style workshop on parallel programming patterns, will be March 30 – April 1 in Carefree, AZ. You are invited to submit a paper. Papers should 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.
Similar to PLoP, ParaPLoP will be organized as a set of writer’s workshops. ParaPLoP is extremely interactive and begins with the submission process. Submissions are due February 15, but if authors submit earlier, then they will receive feedback and can resubmit. Please visit our submit page for more information.
Space permitting, non-authors will be allowed to attend ParaPLoP 2010.
Here at patterns & practices we’re considering our options in terms of a follow-up on the PDC workshop. A book may be on the cards. If you have things you’d like patterns & practices to be doing in this space then post a comment here.
