The method of collecting and communicating design knowledge in the shape of design patterns is a proven method, which is applied in different domains originating from architecture over software engineering, organizational aspects up to application design. This work introduces an extension of the pattern language concept and the applied pattern format introduced by Christopher Alexander, Jan Borchers and others. Our intention is to formulate a generic pattern language for ubiquitous computing application design. The language should enable contributors to integrate ideas and approaches from related domains into one pattern language construct. We present new and extended features for the traditional pattern language concept and its pattern structures on a conceptual basis. We also address n eeded features when opening the pattern language concept for a community that is asked to provide feedback to given patterns and contribute new findings.
