For computer simulations of physiological experiments using physiological models, a machine-readable format of experimental protocols is effective. Here, we propose an XML-based language, PEPML (Physiological Experimental Protocol Markup Language). In the PEPML, conditions and procedures of an experimental protocol are procedurally described as a list of events, each of which consists of a condition for execution and an action to be executed. Since variables used in a protocol can be specified using an ontology, the protocol can be applied to various models without editing tasks. The PEPML allows both application of multiple protocols to a single model and application of a single protocol to multiple models. This feature facilitates the efficient simulation for verifications, comparisons and utilizations of physiological models.
