International Workshop on Petri nets for Twin Transition

The Workshop on Petri nets for Twin Transition (PN4TT’2023) is a satellite event of the 44th International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets and Concurrency (Petri Nets 2023). The workshop aims to attract papers related with the use of Petri nets to support digitalization and green transitions. This twin transition has a potentially big societal impact, in particular for future generations, not only while associated with the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0 and Industry 5.0), but also associated with the decarbonized and environmentally friendly economy.
