The last 15 years revolutionized biology moving from gene centric to genome centric views of biological mechanisms. Technology has been one of the main driving forces of this revolution which involves analyzing, storing and mining huge data sets and which challenges the researchers to integrate data coming from many data sources to obtain a global vision of complex systems and phenomena. However, technology improvement represents only the tip of the iceberg in biology. Mathematical models, built and tuned from experimental data, can offer both a precise representation of the interactions of biological systems and a way of studying their dynamics to reveal new knowledge.
This talk focuses on the biologist view of experiments and the implication of such a view on the use of biological data in model definition.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform for researchers aiming at fundamental research and real life applications of Petri nets in Systems and Synthetic Biology.
Systems and Synthetic Biology are full of challenges and open issues, with adequate modelling and analysis techniques being one of them.
Petri nets offer a family of related models, which can be used as a kind of umbrella formalism — models may share the network structure, but vary in their kinetic details (quantitative information). This clearly contributes to bridging the gap between different formalisms, and helps to unify diversity.
Case studies in systems and synthetic biology demonstrating the specific power by the combined use of different Petri net classes are especially encouraged.
This workshop intends to gather students and researchers, who have interests in the application of Petri nets for biological processes. Its main goal will be to demonstrate that Petri net can be an effective technique to tackle the issues which reside in many biological problems. The workshop also promotes discussions between advanced researchers and beginners, which may enhance the world-wide activities in Petri net applications on biological processes.
Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. All papers should be in LNCS format, and have to be submitted via EasyChair. The page limit given below includes figures, tables and references.
There are the following categories of submissions.
A submission should be clearly assigned to one category.
Based on the review process, a submission may be accepted as is, accepted with minor changes, rejected or selected for oral presentation only. In the latter case, an abstract can be published.
Proceedings will be electronically published with CEUR Workshop Proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org) with consecutive volume numbers for each workshop allocated with PETRI NET 2013, as well as local proceedings distributed via USB Memory Sticks.
Best papers will be proposed to be invited for the follow-up publication in Transactions on Petri Nets and other models of Concurrency (ToPNoC).
