The 2005 conference was organized in Miami by the School of Computer Science at Florida International University (USA). We would like to express our deep thanks to the Organizing Committee, chaired by Xudong He, for the time and e?ort invested to the bene?t of the community in making the event successful. Several tutorials and workshops were organized within the conf- ence, covering introductory and advanced aspects related to Petri nets.
