Call for Papers and Announcement Petri Nets 2021

42nd International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets 
and Concurrency
& special track on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD)

Paris, France, June 20-25, 2021

*** NEW! Submission deadlines extended to 3rd February 2021 (both 
abstract and full paper) ***

Contact e-mail:
pn2021 at petrinet.net


** The organizers are carefully monitoring the development of the 
COVID-19 pandemic to determine whether PN 2021 will be held physically 
in Paris, virtually or in a hybrid manner. **

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=petrinets2021 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 13, 2021 => February 3rd, 2021 (EXTENDED)
Paper submission:      January 20, 2021 => February 3rd, 2021 (EXTENDED)
Notification:          March 5, 2021
Final version due:     March 19, 2021
Workshops & tutorials: June 21-22, 2021
Main conference:       June 23-25, 2021

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 research.

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.
