The ninth edition in the series of Young European Queueing Theorists (YEQT) workshops took place at EURANDOM, Eindhoven, from November 11-13, 2015.


The YEQT workshops are organized annually by the EURANDOM research institute for stochastics located at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands. The aim of these workshops is to bring together young researchers (recently appointed lecturers or assistant professors, post-docs and senior PhD students) and renowned scientists, to share and discuss research in operations research, applied probability and related areas.

This year's programme consisted of fourteen talks given by young researchers, namely PhDs or Postdocs, three keynote talks, and two tutorial talks. In addition, over 50 participants attended the workshop, and due to the popularity of the workshop registration had to be closed since the room reached full capacity.

The workshop was a success because it grouped top researchers from the US and Europe, including the Netherlands. The informal and friendly setting of the Eurandom lounge allowed for many fruitful interactions and conversations among workshop attendees, and the coffee and lunch breaks were a nice occasion for everyone to discuss the talks and other research topics of interest.
