    • April 30, 2020: Final Camera-ready Abstracts.


    The scope of the STOCHMOD 2020 meeting includes both theoretical advances in stochastic modelling techniques and relevant applications. The contribution may lie in the formulation of new stochastic models, in the development of new analytical methods, or in the innovative application of existing models and methods.

    Plenary speakers

    • Prof. Xi-Ren Cao, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong
    • Prof. Ger Koole, Vrije Universiteit,  The Netherlands
    • Prof. J. George Shanthikumar, Purdue University, USA
