This volume contains the proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Application and Theory of Petri Nets. The aim of the Petri net conferences is to create a forum for the dissemination of the latest results in the application and theory of Petri nets. Typically there are some 150-200 participants and usually one third of these come from industry, while the rest are from universities and research institutions.
