Important Dates
Submission of Papers: January 10, 2013
Submission of Tutorial Proposals: January 10, 2013
Notification:  March 1, 2013
Final Version Due: April 1, 2013
Participation in Tool Exhibition: June 1, 2013
Workshops & Tutorials:  June 24-25, 2013
Conference:  June 26-28, 2013

The deadline for submission of papers is STRICT.
However, if you submit the title page by January 10
it is sufficient to submit the full paper by January 15.

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

The 34th annual international Petri Net conference will be organised  
by the Department of Computer Science, Systems and Communication  
(DISCo), University of Milano - Bicocca. The conference takes place  
under the auspices of the EATCS, and GI SIG "Petri Nets and Related  
System Models". The language of the conference is English, and its  
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in  
Computer Science. All accepted papers will be considered for the  
"Outstanding Paper" award(s). Papers presenting original research on  
application or theory of Petri nets, as well as contributions  
addressing topics relevant to the general field of distributed and  
concurrent systems are sought.


Topics specific to Petri Nets

  - System design using nets
  - Analysis and synthesis, structure and behaviour of nets
  - Relationships between Petri Nets and other approaches
  - Net-based semantical, logical and algebraic calculi
  - Symbolic net representation (graphical or textual)
  - Computer tools for nets
  - Experience with using nets, case studies
  - Higher-level net models
  - Timed and stochastic nets
  - Standardisation of nets
  - Experience reports describing applications of nets to different  
kinds of
    systems and application fields, e.g.:
      - flexible manufacturing systems
      - office automation
      - real-time systems
      - workflows
      - embedded systems
      - supervisory control
      - defence systems
      - protocols and networks
      - biological systems
      - Internet
      - health and medical systems
      - e-commerce and trading
      - environmental systems
      - programming languages
      - hardware
      - performance evaluation
      - telecommunications
      - operations research
      - railway networks

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

Paper Submissions
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  
    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. For papers describing  
    experiences from applications of Petri Nets, authors are  
encouraged to
    consult the document: ApplicationFormat.pdf (available at
  - 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).  
For more
    information, please see the document: ToolFormat.pdf (available at
    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 neither already been published nor are
    simultaneously being considered for publication in a peer-reviewed  
  - 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) no later than the above  
    deadlines using the website

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

Authors will be notified about the outcome of the evaluation procedure
by March 1, 2013. Submissions violating the above requirements may be
immediately rejected by the PC Chairs.

Tool Exhibition

An exhibition of Petri net tools takes place on Wednesday. It consists  
informal demonstrations for small groups/individuals, and there are no
scheduled talks. Requests for participation in the tool exhibition  
must be sent
to the Tool Exhibition Chair before June 1, 2013. They should include  
a link to
the web pages for the tool (or a short description of the tool). The
demonstrators bring their own machines, while the organisers may be  
to give access to the Internet.

Workshops and Tutorials

The conference takes place from Wednesday to Friday. The days before the
conference also offer a wide range of activities.

The Petri Net Course takes place from Sunday to Tuesday. It offers a  
introduction to Petri Nets and consists of four parts: Basic Net  
Coloured Petri Nets, Timed and Stochastic Petri Nets, and Applications  
of Petri
Nets. If all four parts are followed, 3 ECTS credit points can be  
awarded to a
participant. For further information please contact Jetty Kleijn
(kleijn at liacs.nl) or Joerg Desel (joerg.desel at fernuni-hagen.de).

The Workshops and Advanced Tutorials take place on Monday and Tuesday. A
detailed description of the tutorials and workshops will be available  
via the
conference web pages.

The following workshops are scheduled for 2013:

* Petri Nets and Software Engineering (PNSE'13)
* Biological Processes & Petri Nets (BioPPN)
* Models of Objects, Organizations, Components, Agents, Artefacts and
  Services in Business Environments (MOCASBE)

In addition there will a Model Checking contest:
* Petri Net Model Checking Contest

The submission deadline for workshops is March 22, 2013.

It is also possible to arrange Meetings and Courses related to Petri  
Submissions for such activities, as well as for Advanced Tutorials, must
contain a 2-5 page description. They must be received by the PC-chairs
no later than January 10, 2013.
