YEQT XIV: "Load balancing and scheduling for distributed service systems"

Jun 7, 2021 - Jun 9, 2021

Summary

Distributed service systems are ubiquitous, from server farms for cloud computing and charging stations for electric vehicles, to checkout lines at supermarkets and ICU beds in hospitals. The size of many of these systems has exploded over the past few years, which has created new challenges in the design of control policies. These new challenges, such as scalability, data locality, and server and task heterogeneity, have fueled a renewed interest in the study of these systems, and accelerated the introduction of more recent theoretical tools that opened new and exciting avenues of research around this topic. This workshop will focus on the application of new approaches and techniques from queueing theory, operations research, and machine learning to the control, design, and modeling of such distributed service systems.

The 14th edition of the YEQT workshop, which will take place in the spring of 2021, aims to bring together young researchers (PhD students, postdocs, and recently appointed lecturers or assistant professors) and renowned scientists to share ideas, discuss research, and get an overview of the current trends in queueing theory and operations research. Following the trend initiated by the previous edition of the workshop, we would also like to make a bridge with disparate disciplines, such as machine learning and data science, to encourage more interdisciplinary work and foster novel ideas in load balancing and scheduling for distributed service systems. The workshop program will consist of presentations by young researchers and keynote presentations by prominent scientists.

Format

We currently aim for a physical event. However, due to the uncertainty in the prevailing corona measures at the time of the workshop, both the number of participants who will be accommodated and the format of the workshop (physical, online, or hybrid) may be adjusted. The final decision will be communicated early 2021.
