As some of you will recall, I was one of the Chairs for the European Patterns conference in 2008 and 2009. One of my responsibilities for the 2009 conference was to produce the conference proceedings. Well I’ve done it!
2009 represents a change for EuroPLoP. Until now we have published our proceedings in a physical book, a large book I should mention. This cost the conference organisers money (because it sold almost no copies), the money pushed up fees, and the proceedings were almost completely inaccessible unless you actually went to the conference. While some authors (like myself) put their papers online not everybody did.
For 2009 this has all changed, we’ve gone electronic. Thanks to CEUR EuroPLoP 2009 proceedings are available for free to anyone who want them. You can download individual papers or everything as one 30Mb PDF file.
So roll up, roll up, get your EuroPLoP 2009 conference proceedings here!
