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 Academia Europaea, 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.

Verification of infinite-state or parametric systems
Causality/partial order theory of concurrency
Educational issues related to concurrency

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 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. For papers describing the experiences from applications of Petri Nets, authors are encouraged to consult the document: ApplicationFormat.pdf.
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. 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 forum;
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 mentioned 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 paper.

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 of 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 requested 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 thorough introduction to Petri Nets and consists of four parts: Basic Net Classes, 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 (spam-protected email address) or Jörg Desel (spam-protected email address).

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.

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