Welcome to QTNA2017 Homepage!

The 12th International Conference on Queueing Theory and Network Applications (QTNA2017) 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), QTNA2015 (Hanoi, Vietnam) and QTNA2016 (Wellington, New Zealand).

The QTNA2017 conference aims to promote the knowledge and the development of high-quality research on queueing theory and its applications in networks and other related fields. 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 scientific areas.

The QTNA2017 conference was held in Qinhuangdao, China, August 21-23, 2017. The conference was co-organized by Yanshan University, China.
