During the last two decades many patterns, pattern languages, and case studies describing their successful application have been published in a number of different disciplines. However, this still feels like the tip of an iceberg, with many open scientific questions, e. g. regarding the theoretical background of patterns and the practical implementation of pattern methods in research and teaching. Both workshop and conference are intended to stimulate the attention for pattern related work, both in the scientific community and the wider public, by showing its broad applicability and fruitfulness. Following a preparatory workshop in November 2014, the world conference PURPLSOC will be hosted by Danube University Krems from July 3rd to 5th 2015. PURPLSOC ist planned to take place every two years on an alternating basis with the International PUARL Conference at the University of Oregon in Portland and close to EuroPLoP 2015 (8th to 12th of July). PURPLSOC provides a forum for researchers from a variety of fields as well as the broader public to come together and discuss topics such as: •Architecture, Urbanism and Regional Development •Design, Media, Arts & IT •Pedagogy, Education and Learning •Social Activism, Social Innovation and Grassroots Movement •Everyday Applications and Additional Disciplines
