StochMod 2016 in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Announcement

The next StochMod conference, the biennial conference of the EURO working group on stochastic modeling, will take place at the Université catholique de Louvain, in Louvain-la-Neuve, on July 11-13, 2016.

Since 2006, the EURO Working group holds biennial meetings, organized by one of its members. Anyone interested in presenting their work, participating in the discussions, or more simply learning and/or consulting about the subject of stochastics may join the group and its meetings. Their participation will be greatly appreciated.

Applied Probabilists, Operation Researchers, Engineers, Computer Scientists and Statisticians with a main or side interest in stochastic modelling are very welcome. The scope of the conference includes both theoretical papers with advances in mathematical techniques that can be useful for analyzing stochastic models as well as applications of performance analysis of telecommunication systems, the modelling of logistics and service systems, the theory of queueing and inventory models, revenue management, and so forth.

StochMod16 will also be part of the 50th anniversary celebration of CORE, the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics, at UCL.
