Call for Papers


The QTNA conference aims to promote the knowledge and development of high-quality research on queueing theory and its applications to networks and other related fields. The conference brings together researchers, scientists and practitioners from over 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 and related applications.

The proceedings of QTNA 2019 will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (approved).
