21-06-2019: Symposium "“Rare events, simulation and queueing networks"

On June 21st, Anne Buijsrogge will defend her  PhD-thesis"Rare Event Simulation for Non-Markovian Tandem Queues". Prior to this public defense, a mini-symposium on “Rare events, simulation and queueing networks” is planned, which will be held at the University of Twente, Ravelijn 2501, for which you are cordially invited. The mini-symposium is free of charge and registration is appreciated by sending an email to You are more than welcome to send this invitation to other people that might be interested.
