For the successful realization 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 modeling, 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, colored Petri nets and extensions) in the
formal process of software engineering, covering modeling, validation,
and verification, will be presented as well as their application and tools
supporting the disciplines mentioned above.

Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the Transaction on
Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency (ToPNoC) subline of Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


Invited Speakers

Gabriele Taentzer
(Philipps-Universitet Marburg)
Model-Driven Development of Platform-Independent Mobile Applications

Yann Thierry-Mieg
(University Paris and Marie Curie, LIP6, France)
Bridging the Gap Between Formal Methods and Software Engineering
Using Model-based Technology



We welcome contributions describing original research in topics related to
Petri nets in combination with software engineering, addressing open
problems or presenting new ideas regarding the relation of Petri nets and
software engineering. Furthermore we look for surveys addressing open
problems and new applications of Petri nets. Topics of interest include but
are not limited to:

representation of formal models by intuitive modeling concepts
guidelines for the construction of system models
representative examples
process-, service-, state-, event-, object- and agent-oriented approaches
adaption, integration, and enhancement of concepts from other disciplines
views and abstractions of systems
model-driven architecture
modeling software landscapes
web service-based software development

Validation and Execution
simulation, observation, animation
code generation and execution
testing and debugging
efficient implementation

structural methods (e.g. place invariants, reduction rules)
results for structural subclasses of nets
relations between structure and behavior
state space-based approaches
efficient model checking
assertional and deductive methods (e.g. temporal logics)
process algebraic methods
applications of category theory and linear logic

Application of Petri nets in Software Engineering, in particular the
use of Petri nets in the domains of
flexible manufacturing,
big data,
cyper-physical systems,
cloud computing,
distributed systems,
workflow management and
embedded systems.

Tools in the fields mentioned above


The program committee invites submissions of full contributions (up to
20 pages) or short contributions (up to 5 pages). Ongoing work (up to 2
pages) can also be presented in a special poster session.
Papers should be submitted in electronic form (PDF) using the Springer
LNCS-format (see
Submissions should include title, authors' addresses, E-mail addresses,
keywords and an abstract. For your submission in PDF format please use
the online conference management system at

Just create a new account and then upload your paper. (Later you will be
able to see your reviews there.) The papers will be peer reviewed by at
least three members of the PC. Accepted contributions will be included
in the workshop proceedings, which will be available at the workshop
and published online.


Some of the best papers from the workshop will be invited for
publication in a volume of the journal sub-line of Lecture Notes in
Computer Science entitled "Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models
of Concurrency" (ToPNoC). The papers are expected to be thoroughly
revised and they will go through a totally new round of reviewing as is
standard practice for journal papers.
Papers from previous instances of this workshop (PNSE'07, PNDS'08,
PNSE'09, PNSE'10, PNSE'11, PNSE'12, PNSE'13, PNSE'14 and
PNSE'15) made it into ToPNoC volumes in the Springer LNCS series
(volumes 5100, 5460, 5800, 6550, 6900, 7400, 7480, 8100 and 8910).
