Initial Paper Submission

Two kinds of papers can be submitted:

  • Regular papers (max. 20 pages excluding references) 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 excluding references) 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.

Papers must be written in English using the Springer LNCS format:, including line numbers (e.g. lineno LATEX package) and submitted electronically (as a PDF file) in EasyChair:, by the deadline indicated here.
