Authors Information

What kind of papers can I submit ?

Three kinds of papers can be submitted:

A typical application paper is a paper that describes one or more projects in which Petri net models and tools have been used in practice. An application paper may also describe a methodology, or other developments that demonstrate the applicability of Petri nets to industrial systems.

A typical tool paper is a paper which has its focus on the description of a computer tool for Petri Nets (not an application of the tool or the theory behind the tool). For more information on what a typical tool paper should contain, please see the document: ToolFormat.pdf. The tool should be available for use by other groups and it should be demonstrated in the Tool Exhibition.

Submission details

Submissions for papers must contain original contributions that have not been published or submitted to other conferences/journals in parallel with this conference. They also must clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the results achieved, and the relation to other work.

Submissions must be in the Springer LNCS-format and have a length that does not exceed 20 pages (10 pages for tool papers). They must be in English and in a form that can be immediately included in the proceedings without major revision. They must be sent electronically (as a PostScript or PDF file) using the dedicated website no later than January 5, 2009.

The title page must contain a short abstract and a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics listed in the call for papers. It must also clearly indicate whether the paper is submitted as a theory paper, an application paper, or a tool paper.

Submissions received too late and submissions sent by fax or ordinary mail will be immediately rejected. The same will happen with papers which are not in English or exceed the page limit.

Authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection by March 1, 2009. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The final camera-ready version of accepted papers must be received by the PC chairs no later than April 1, 2009.
