Call for Papers and Announcement

International Workshop on Petri Nets and Software Engineering
PNSE’20, Paris, France, June 22-23, 2020

       PNSE’20 is a satellite event of PETRI NETS’20


For the successful realisation of complex systems of interacting and
reactive software and hardware components the use of a precise language at
different stages of the development process is of crucial importance.

Petri nets are becoming increasingly popular in this area, as they provide
a uniform language supporting the tasks of modelling, validation, and

We welcome contributions describing original research in topics related to
Petri nets in combination with software engineering, addressing open
or presenting new ideas regarding the relation of Petri nets and software
engineering. Furthermore, we look for surveys addressing open problems
and new
applications of Petri nets and for Petri nets.

  embedded systems.

Tools in the fields mentioned above


The program committee invites submissions of full contributions (15 up
to 20 pages)
or short contributions (5 up to 8 pages).
Ongoing work (up to 2 pages) can also be presented in a special poster

Papers should be submitted in electronic form (PDF) using the Springer
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).  Submissions should
include title,
authors' addresses, E-mail addresses, keywords and an abstract.

For your submission in PDF format please use the online conference
management system at


The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the PC.
contributions will be included in the workshop proceedings, which will
be available
at the workshop and published online.

The best papers from the workshop will be invited for publication in a
volume of the
journal sub-line of Lecture Notes in Computer Science entitled
"Transactions on
Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency" (ToPNoC). The papers are
to be thoroughly revised and they will go through a totally new round of
as is standard practice for journal papers.

PC Chairs

Ekkart Kindler, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark
Michael Köhler-Bußmeier, University of Applied Science Hamburg, Germany
Heiko Rölke, FH Graubünden, Austria
