Call for Papers and Announcement Petri Nets 2020

41st International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets
and Concurrency in
Paris, France, June 22-26, 2020

Includes special track on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD)

Submission deadline: 15 January 2020 (abstract), 21 January 2020 (full

Two kinds of papers can be submitted:

* Regular papers (max 20 pages) describing original results pertaining
to the development of the theory of Petri Nets and distributed and
concurrent systems in general, new results extending the applicability
of Petri Nets, or case studies, application and experience reports
pertinent to the practical use of Petri Nets and concurrency.

* Tool papers (max 10 pages) describing a computer tool based on Petri
Nets (not an application of the tool or the theory behind the tool). The
tool should be available for use by other groups (but not necessarily
for free). The submission should indicate how the reviewers can get
access to the tool (this must be for free). The tool will be
demonstrated in the Tool Exhibition, in addition to being presented in a
conference talk.

Submitted papers must:
* be contributions that have not been published or submitted to other
conferences/journals before or in parallel with this conference.
* clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the
results achieved, and the relation to other work.
* be in English and in the Springer LNCS-format:
* adhere to the page limit for the relevant category (see above).
* be sent electronically (as a PDF file) using the website
http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=petrinets2020 before the deadline.

The title page must:
* contain a short abstract and a classification of the topics covered,
preferably using the list of topics above.
* clearly indicate whether the paper is submitted as a regular paper or
tool paper.

Submissions violating the above requirements may be immediately rejected
by the PC Chairs.

Important Dates:
Abstract submission: January 15, 2020
Paper submission: January 21, 2020
Notification: March 6, 2020
Final Version Due: March 20, 2020
Workshops & Tutorials: June 22-23, 2020
Main Conferences: June 24-26, 2020

Best papers accepted for the conference will be invited as submissions
to a special issue of
the Fundamenta Informaticae journal.

General topics related to concurrency

- Model checking and verification of distributed systems
- Verification of infinite-state or parametric systems
- Causality/partial order theory of concurrency
- Educational issues related to concurrency
- New issues and developments in the theory of concurrency
- Modelling of hardware and biological systems

Topics specific to Petri nets

- Analysis and synthesis, structure and behaviour of nets
- System design and model-driven development using nets
- Relationships between Petri Nets and other approaches
- Net-based semantical, logical and algebraic calculi
- Higher-level net models (coloured nets, timed nets, etc.)
- Stochastic net models
- Verification and model checking using nets
- Process discovery and conformance checking
- Computer tools for nets
- Standardisation of nets
- Computer tools for nets
- Experience reports describing applications of nets to different kinds
of systems and application fields, e.g.:
    flexible manufacturing systems, real-time systems, embedded systems,
biological systems, health and medical systems, environmental systems,
hardware, telecommunications, railway networks, components based
development, office automation, workflows, process mining, supervisory
control, protocols and networks, Internet and web services, e-commerce
and trading, programming languages, performance evaluation, operations

Special track on ACSD (Application of Concurrency to System Design)

- Both theoretical and applied research about formal approaches (in a
broad sense) to designing computer systems that exhibit concurrent
The formal models of computation and concurrency for the above systems
and problems are not limited by Petri nets, but also include models like
dataflow models, communicating automata, process algebras, graph
rewriting systems, state charts, MSCs, modal and temporal logics.


Tool Exhibition:
The tools presented in the accepted tool papers will be demonstrated in
the Tool Exhibition,
in addition to being presented in a conference talk.
