Paris - France, May 30 - June 1, 2012

We are pleased to announce that the 4th meeting of the EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies) Working Group on Stochastic Modeling will take place on May 30 to June 1 2012 at Ecole Centrale Paris. This Working Group is concerned with all aspects, both theoretical and practical, of mathematical modeling using stochastic models.

Dates: Wednesday, May 30 to Friday, June 1, 2012
Organized by: Laboratoire Génie Industriel, Ecole Centrale Paris
Conference venue: Ecole Centrale Paris, Châtenay-Malabry, France

The main aim of the Working Group is to provide a platform for researchers working on the theory and/or applications of stochastic models and to stimulate exchange and cooperation between its members. More information on the Working Group can be found at . The areas of interest include but are not restricted to: performance analysis of telecommunication systems, the modeling of logistics and service systems, the theory of queueing and inventory models, revenue management, and so forth. The use of stochastic models is the binding factor.

The meeting is intended as a platform for exchanging ideas on various areas in stochastic modeling. Anyone interested in presenting their work, participating in the discussions, or more simply learning and/or consulting about the subject of stochastic modeling may join the group and attend its meetings. Research presentations of both theoretical contributions (concepts, method, etc.) and applied research are welcome.

There will also be plenary talks by:

- François Baccelli, Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris
- Rhonda Righter, UC Berkeley
- Refael Hassin, Tel Aviv University
