Abstract:


Architectural software patterns capture successful designs for recurring problems in software architecture. For thefirst time, a workshop in the tradition of the software-pattern conference series (e.g. PLoP, EuroPLoP) was held jointly with the European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA 2014) in Vienna, Austria. The main objective of this workshop called MiniPLoP was to bring software architecture researchers closer to the pattern community and to introduce the writers´ workshop format to them. Writers´ workshop at PLoP conferences provide authors of pattern papers with high-density feedback given by peers within a limited timeframe. In addition, our workshop provided a forum to reflect on the state of software architecture patterns and to discuss advances pattern research. This report contains an extended keynote abstract and summaries of the papers discussed during the workshop.
