The 38th annual international Petri Nets conference will be organised by the Aragón Institute of Engineering Research (I3A), of Zaragoza University, Zaragoza, Spain. The conference will take place at the School of Engineering and Architecture (EINA) of Zaragoza 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.

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 development,
office automation, workflows, process mining, supervisory control, protocols
and networks, Internet and web services, e-commerce and trading, programming
languages, performance evaluation, operations research

Submissions Guidelines

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:
- adhere to the page limit for the relevant category (see above).
- be submitted electronically (as a PDF file) no later than January 10, 2017
(or January 15 if, an abstract was submitted by January 10).

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
