EuroPLoP on Twitter

This isn't the most active blog in the world - the new conference and program chairs have promised to write something here.

Still you might like to know that EuroPLoP now has a Twitter account, @euplop. We mainly use it for conference announcement - in particular conference deadlines.  And as you might expect it gets more active during the conference itself but... as EuroPLoP is largely an "offline" conference neither Twitter feed or blog ever get massive.

(The @euplop moniker was chosen because @europlop is already taken by something completely different. We mean nothing political by using the EU initials, to us it just means "Europe".)

Anyway, please follow up on Twitter.

Proceedings online

Wow! This blog is quiet.

Two EuroPLoPs have come and gone since the last posting. Both good, as always, 2012 somewhat smaller than usual but that just made it more fun. 

Anyway, my reason for blogging today is to collect some links. Specifically the websites where you can find online proceedings for past EuroPLoP conferences.

These are:
2011 is still in the works.

In 2007 we broke with our traditional proceedings publishers, UVK, since when we've been working through different options for publishing.

For future conferences you should see:

  • Conference proceedings about 6-8 months after the conference: a collection of record containing all papers workshopped at the conference, published electronically and physically on Lulu 
  • Selected Conference proceedings, 8-12 months after the conference: the highest quality papers published on the ACM Digital Library 

Once we've rebuilt the EuroPLoP website we will also publish post-conference papers there too.

2 weeks left for EuroPLoP 2011 submissions

There are just two weeks left until the submission deadline for EuroPLoP 2011. If like me you're planning to submit a paper, now is a good time to start wrapping up the writing process and preparing your submission. Personally, I still need to add a couple of sections and a few images to my paper, and go through the references section to get everything in order.

Don't forget...February the 15th is the deadline for submission.
