The focus of this week-long conference will be analysis of stochastic networks and their applications, which includes modelling, stability analysis, control, performance analysis and design of stochastic networks. Such analysis requires the bringing together of ideas and methodologies from a range of mathematical disciplines, including applied probability, stochastic processes, operational research, combinatorics and graph theory. The meeting will cover a diverse range of application areas from those which have traditionally been studied using stochastic networks, for example telecommunications, call centres and  manufacturing networks, to more novel areas, for example power systems, social networks, neural networks.

The meeting will follow a workshop format, similar to previous meetings in the series, which will include approximately 20 hour-long talks from a diverse range of invited speakers and a session for contributed posters. In addition to the talks there will be plenty  of time for participates to interact with each other and exchange ideas and develop collaborations.
