Motivation. The new generation of Discrete-Event Control Systems (DECS) is addressing new important criteria as flexibility and agility. To reduce the development cost, these systems should be changed and adapted to their environment without any disturbance. Several academic and industrial research works have been made in recent years to develop reconfigurable adaptive systems. We distinguish in these works two reconfiguration policies: static and dynamic reconfigurations such that static reconfigurations are applied off-line to apply changes before any system cold start, whereas dynamic reconfigurations are dynamically applied at run-time. Two cases exist in the second policy: manual reconfigurations applied by users and automatic reconfigurations applied by intelligent agents. We are interested in the current workshop in Petri Nets for Adaptive DSCS: Modelling, Verification, Simulation, and Case Studies.

Topics. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Adaptive Discrete Event Control System,
  • Static and Dynamic Reconfiguration,
  • Petri Nets for Intelligent Systems,
  • Petri Nets for Autonomous Systems,
  • Reconfigurable Petri Nets-based Models,
  • Validation and Execution,
  • Optimal Verification of Adaptive Nets,
  • Tests and Simulations of Adaptive Systems,
  • Benchmarking, Adaptive Applications.

(The call for papers is also available as [PDF] or [TXT] document.)

The program committee invites submissions of full contributions (up to 20 pages) or short contributions (up to 5 pages).  Please note that for full contributions up to 15 pages are recommended if the paper should be considered for the journal publication. 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 login or 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 published online.
