The 39th annual international Petri Nets conference will be organized by 
the Interes.Institute in Bratislava in cooperation with Faculty of 
Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and Faculty of 
Informatics and Information Technologies, Slovak University of 
Technology in Bratislava, Slovak Republic. The conference will take 
place at Hotel Austria Trend, Vysoka street 2A, 811 06 Bratislava, 
Slovak Republic. 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.

Submission web-site: EasyChair, 
Submissions guidelines and instructions can be found in the full CfP, 
see the link above.

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.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- 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 developments in the theory of concurrency
- Modelling of hardware and biological systems
- 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, real-time systems, embedded systems,
   biological systems, health and medical systems, environmental systems,
   hardware telecommunications, railway networks, component-based 
   office automation, workflows, process mining, supervisory control, 
   and networks, Internet and web services, e-commerce and trading, 
   languages, performance evaluation, operations research
