Reflections on 40 years of Petri Net Conferences
The 40th Petri net conference was colocated with ACSD and the first International Process Mining Conference (ICPM 2019). Together the three conferences attracted over 520 participants. The location (Tivoli football stadium), the historical context (reflecting on 40 years of Petri net conferences), and the interaction between Petri nets experts and process mining experts made it a unique event.On the occasion of the 40th birthday of the Petri net community, a special session took place just after the closing of the Petri Net Conference. Speakers included Jörg Desel, Wolfgang Reisig, Maciej Koutny, Alex Yakovlev, Gianfranco Balbo, Javier Esparza, Wil van der Aalst, Fabrice Kordon, Jetty Kleijn, and P.S. Thiagarajan.
