37th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON APPLICATIONS AND THEORY OF PETRI NETS AND CONCURRENCY
16th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON APPLICATION OF CONCURRENCY TO SYSTEM DESIGN


Toruń, Poland. 19-24 June 2016

About the Event


The 37th annual international Petri Nets conference will be organized by the Department of Formal Languages and Concurrency (Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science) of Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland. The conference will take place at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Nicolaus Copernicus University. The language of the conference is English, and its proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. 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. All accepted regular papers will be considered for an “Outstanding Paper” award. Some of the best papers will be invited, in an extended form, as submissions to a special issue of a well established computer science journal.

The 16th International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design 2016 will be organised in Toruń (Poland) by the Nicolaus Copernicus University, and will be held from 22nd to 24th June 2016. ACSD seeks papers describing original work which has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. All files must be prepared using the latest IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings guidelines (8.5" x 11" two-column format). The page limit for regular papers is 10 pages. In addition to regular submissions, there will be a tools section. Tools will be presented at the conference in an interactive session. Related papers describe a tool, its functionality and interfaces as well as the underlying algorithms and implementation aspects. These tool papers are limited to 6 pages.

International Workshop on Petri Nets and Software Engineering

http://www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/TGI/events/pnse16/

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 verification. Their popularity is due to the fact that Petri nets capture fundamental aspects of causality, concurrency and choice in a natural and mathematically precise way without compromising readability.

The use of Petri nets (P/T-nets, coloured Petri nets and extensions) in the formal process of software engineering, covering modelling, validation, and verification, will be presented as well as their application and tools supporting the disciplines mentioned above.

7th International Workshop on Biological Processes & Petri Nets (BioPPN 2016)

http://www-dssz.informatik.tu-cottbus.de/BME/BioPPN2016

The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for researchers aiming at fundamental research and real life applications of Petri nets and other concurrency models in Systems and Synthetic Biology.

Algorithms & Theories for the Analysis of Event Data (ATAED) 2016

http://www.fernuni-hagen.de/ataed2016/

The workshop aims to attract papers related to Process Mining, Region Theory and other synthesis techniques. These techniques have in common that "lower level" behavioral descriptions (event logs, partial orders, transition systems, etc.) are used to create "higher level" process models (e.g., various classes of Petri nets, BPMN, or UML activity diagrams).

Petri Net Course

The Petri Net Course takes place on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday June 19-21. Organisers are Jörg Desel (FernU. Hagen) and Jetty Kleijn (Leiden U.).

This course offers a thorough introduction to Petri Nets in four half-day modules on Sunday and Monday with on Tuesday a choice from two full-day tutorial module on applications of Petri Nets and/or new developments presented by experts in the area. Each module of the course can be taken separately. In particular, the lectures on Tuesday can be followed as independent tutorials.

Credits

All Petri Net Course modules are open for everyone interested. For the course as a whole, graduate and PhD Students are the intended audience. It is possible to earn credit points (3 ECTS awarded by Leiden University, NL) on basis of successful participation in the Course including: a preparation phase before the Course; examinations for the modules of Sunday and Monday in the form of small exercises or homework; and a written report as an outcome of a project associated with the tutorial chosen for Tuesday,

For the preparation phase, students who have registered for the full course, will receive in advance material containing preliminaries on the philosophy of net theory, basic notions, small examples, typical application areas etc. For the examination of the Sunday/Monday modules, time will be available during the course. The completion of the assignment of the Tuesday module will take place after the Petri Net Course as agreed with the lecturer(s).

Model Checking Contest

Model Checking Contest @ Petri Nets 2016

http://mcc.lip6.fr/cft.php

The Model Checking Contest (MCC) is a yearly event that assesses existing verification tools for concurrent systems on a set of models (i.e., benchmarks) proposed by the scientific community. All tools are compared on the same benchmarks and using the same computing platform, so that a fair comparison can be made, contrary to most scientific publications, in which different benchmarks are executed on different platforms.

Submission of Papers
EasyChair
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: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
  • adhere to the page limit for the relevant category (see above).
  • be sent electronically (as a PDF file) no later than January 10 (or January 15 if, an abstract was submitted by January 10), 2016 using the easychair 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 paper.
Submissions violating the above requirements may be immediately rejected by the PC Chairs.
