Stochastic Networks 2018

 25 - 29 Jun 2018
 ICMS, 15 South College Street Edinburgh

Scientific Organisers:

  • James Cruise, Heriot-Watt University

  • Fraser Daly, Heriot-Watt University

  • Sergey Foss, Heriot-Watt University

  • Seva Shneer, Heriot-Watt University

The focus was the 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 covered a diverse range of application areas, such as telecommunications, call centres and  manufacturing networks, to more novel areas, for example power systems, social networks, neural networks.
