          11th International Conference on Queueing Theory
                   and Network Applications
                     December 13-15, 2016
                   Wellington, New Zealand


Submission Deadline - September 15, 2016

The QTNA2016 conference will be held in Wellington, December 13-15, 
2016. The conference is organized by Victoria University of Wellington 
(VUW), New Zealand, in cooperation with ACM SIGMETRICS.

The 11th International Conference on Queueing Theory and Network 
Applications (QTNA2016) is a continuation of the series of successful 
QTNA conferences - QTNA2006 (Seoul, Korea), QTNA2007 (Kobe, Japan), 
QTNA2008 (Taipei, Taiwan), QTNA2009 (Singapore), QTNA2010 (Beijing, 
China), QTNA2011 (Seoul, Korea), QTNA2012 (Kyoto, Japan), QTNA2013 
(Taichung, Taiwan), QTNA2014 (Bellingham, USA) and QTNA2015 (Hanoi, 

The QTNA2016 conference aims to promote the knowledge and the 
development of high-quality research on queueing theory, its 
applications in networks and other related fields, and also emerging 
areas in networking that can potentially benefit from queueing analysis. 
It brings together researchers, scientists and practitioners from the 
world and offers an open forum to share the latest important research 
accomplishments and challenging problems in the area of queueing theory 
and network applications. The conference will cover all the key topics 
in queueing theory, communication networks and other emerging areas in 

Authors of selected papers from QTNA2016 will be invited to submit the 
extended version of their papers to two special issues of two 
ISI-indexed journals: Annals of Operations Research and Journal of 
Industrial and Management Optimization (JIMO).
