CanQueue 2012

“Bringing Queue Models to Life”
University of Western Ontario

Organizing Committee:
David A. Stanford, The University of Western Ontario
Dr. Douglas G. Woolford, Wilfrid Laurier University

Summary

The objectives of the CanQueue workshops, held annually since 1999, are to promote research and application of queueing theory among practitioners predominantly drawn from Canada. The workshops emphasize discussion of research work in progress, to facilitate feedback from colleagues and collaboration while the direction of the project can still be influenced.
Other objectives include:
1. provide a venue for graduate students to present their work (in progress, or completed) in a supportive environment,
2. provide adequate focus on emerging application areas for congestion analysis,
3. encourage collaboration among researchers in queueing theory in Canada, and
4. introduce relevant and emerging fields of mathematics to the queueing community.
