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
and PNSE'09) made it into ToPNoC volumes in the Springer LNCS
series (volumes 5100, 5460 and 5800). See:


For the successful realisation 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 modelling, 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

The workshop PNSE'10 (Petri nets and Software Engineering) will
take place as a satellite event of Petri Nets 2010.

The use of Petri nets (P/T-nets, coloured Petri nets and
extensions) in the formal process of software engineering,
covering modelling, validation, and verification, will be
presented as well as their application and tools supporting the
disciplines mentioned above.


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 modelling
+ guidelines for the construction of system models
+ representative examples
+ state-oriented, event-oriented, object-oriented, and
agent-oriented approaches
+ adaption, integration, and enhancement of concepts from
other disciplines
+ views and abstractions of systems
+ model-driven architecture
+ modelling software landscapes
+ web service-based software development
Validation and Execution
+ prototyping
+ simulation, observation, animation
+ code generation and execution
+ testing and debugging
+ efficient implementation
+ structural methods (e.g. place invariants, reduction
+ results for structural subclasses of nets
+ relations between structure and behaviour
+ 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,
+ logistics,
+ telecommunication, and
+ workflow management.
Tools in the fields mentioned above

Registration & Accommodation

Please register for the PNSE'10 workshop at the registration site
of the Petri Nets 2010 Hotel Information.

Information about how to reach the workshop / conference site and
about hotels can be found at the Petri Nets 2010 Registration.


The programme committee invites submissions of full contributions
(up to 15 pages) or short contributions (up to 5 pages). Ongoing
work (up to 2 pages) can also be presented in a special poster

Please note that for full contributions up to 15 pages are
recommended. However, up to 20 pages can be used for the
pre-proceedings. Nevertheless only 15 pages will be allowed for
the possible post-proceedings papers.

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 four members of the
PC. Accepted contributions will be included in the workshop
proceedings, which will be available at the workshop and on this
