Workshop Summary
The aim of this workshop is to bring together applied and theoretical probabilists working in the area of Stochastic Networks and related fields. Whereas stochastic networks model complex interacting systems and have applications, e.g. in telecommunications, in wireless networks and in manufacturing systems, they give rise to a number of fundamental questions ranging from limit theorems and stability to performance aspects using diffusions or more general stochastic processes. We would like to identify new research directions of both applied and theoretical nature. Some of the themes of the workshop are:
  • Stochastic Modelling
  • Limit Theorems and Approximations
  • Asymptotics and Simulation
  • Random Graphs and Stochastic Geometry
  • Beyond Traditional Research in Stochastic Networks
Since the goal is to foster collaboration between various fields, we are particularly open to applications from non-traditional stochastic networks research. Some places are still available. Anyone interested in taking part should contact Takis Konstantopoulos (T.Konstantopoulos 'at' ma.hw.ac.uk)
