2nd International Workshop on Petri Nets for Adaptive Discrete Event Control Systems (ADECS 2015)


A satellite event of PETRI NETS 2015 and ACSD 2015

Brussels, Belgium, Monday June 22, 2015


Technical Description

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.

This workshop intends to gather students and researchers who have interests in the application of concurrency modelling and analysis techniques for adaptive DECS. Case studies with specific focus on reconfigurability and demonstrating the specific power of different Petri net classes are especially encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
