The AWPN workshop is organized by the Special Interest Group "Petri nets and related system models" (0.0.1) of the German Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) with the focus on algorithms and tools or Petri nets. It has a long tradition of being informal and low-budget.

This year, the AWPN workshop will be held at the University of Augsburg.

The workshop focusses on theoretical issues for analysis and simulation of Petri nets and on experiences with the implementation of visualization, analysis and simulation tools. Actual results, tools and surveys can be presented. The emphasis of the meeting should be the exchange of experiences and discussion.
