This week-long international
conference continues a tradition of similar meetings held over the last
20 years. The meetings began with the workshop organized by Peter Glynn
and Tom Kurtz in Madison in 1987. The last three editions were held in
Stanford (2002), Montreal (2004) and Urbana-Champaign (2006). These
meetings have brought together mathematicians and applied researchers,
including many from industry, who share an interest in stochastic
Like its predecessors, the Paris Stochastic Networks Conference
emphasize new model structures and new mathematical problems that are
motivated by contemporary developments.
There was 20 invited talks over a six-day period (Monday through
Saturday), plus contributed poster sessions, with plenty of time in the
interstices for informal discussion.
