### Workshop:

Stochastic Networks and Related Topics III

#### 22 – 27 May, 2011, Będlewo

The research area of stochastic networks takes its origins in the analysis of models describing the behavior of systems that require the customers to wait. Started off with the classical queueing theory, nowadays this field of research is strongly stimulated by problems arising in modern communication networks such as internet networks, mobile telephony, local area networks, wireless networks etc. The variety of open questions, that emerge from modeling of new network structures, enforces the current research to lie at the interface between such areas as extreme value theory, fluctuation theory, stochastic geometry, random walks on graphs, large deviations, stochastic simulations etc. This makes the theory of stochastic networks especially interesting for applied and theoretical probability.

The proposed workshop aims at:

- searching for new trends in this field and at overviewing new probabilistic techniques useful for modeling stochastic networks.
- bringing together leading researchers from different fields of applied probability that are utilized for models analyzed in the area of stochastic networks
