Performance Modeling and
Design of Computer Systems:
Queueing Theory in Action
by Mor Harchol-Balter
Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania
Special Issue of INFOR
QUEUEING IN COMPUTER AND TELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
Department of Computing and Software, McMaster
School of Mathematics and Statistics, Carleton
The use of queueing theory in the analysis and
management of computer and telecommunications systems
has by now a lengthy history, with many important
contributions in the design and analysis of such
systems. There appear to be no signs of this letting up
opportunities abound for queueing to aid in
developments in wireless networking, cloud computing,
social networking and many other modern application
areas. There has been and continues to be a strong
Canadian presence in the use of queueing theory in
these domains, and with the recent founding of the
Queueing Special Interest Group within the Canadian
Operational Research Society, the time is ripe for us
to sponsor a Special Issue in this area (the call is
not restricted to Canadian researchers).
INFOR, the flagship journal of the Canadian Operational
Research Society, invites members of that community and
others to submit publications for a special issue
devoted to Queueing in Computer and Telecommunication
Systems. Topics of interest include: performance
models for computer and communications systems;
theoretical work on issues that arise in computer and
telecommunications systems; simulation; algorithm
design; control and resource allocation; discussion of
the gap between theory and implementation and efforts
to overcome such a gap; surveys of current areas of
Submissions must be original and not published
elsewhere. Papers will be refereed in accordance to
normal INFOR standards. For more information, please
contact the guest editors.
Submit papers in PDF format to the guest editors,
Douglas Down and Yiqiang Zhao:
Submission deadline: May 15, 2013
- Qi-Ming HE's book: Fundamentals of Matrix-Analytic Methods
should be coming out some time in 2013
Jyotiprasad Medhi's new book "An Introduction to Queueing
Systems and Applications" ("is expected to be out soon, both International and
Indian editions. It is an introductory level book addressed to non specialists
who wish to look at and deal with QUEUES.")
- April, 2012.
An excellent new queueing book Analysis of Queues: Methods and Applications, by
Natarajan Gautam, was released.
