Stochastic Networks


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop Theme

Stochastic networks is a multifaceted area of research dealing with the stability, control, performance, approximation and design of stochastic models of networks. It gives rise to challenging and subtle mathematical problems, whose solution often requires a combination of ideas and techniques from several branches of mathematics, including probability theory, stochastic processes, analysis, optimization, combinatorics and graph theory. Research in this area is strongly motivated by applications in diverse areas, ranging from the traditional areas of telecommunications and manufacturing to service operations, biological and social networks and revenue management. The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in this area to survey recent developments and identify future research directions. The workshop has been structured so as to maximize interactions between speakers and participants and to facilitate a fruitful exchange of ideas. This week-long international workshop continues a tradition that was started in 1987 and that has now become a bi-annual event.
