CanQueue 2021 Update (May 27, 2021)

We previously announced that CanQueue2021 was scheduled to take place in Montreal on August 13 - 14, and would be hosted by GERAD and sponsored by GERAD and the McGill Management Science Research Centre. The current situation is that in-person events at GERAD are not permitted until September at the earliest. We are considering two options: A remote-format event on August 13-14 or an in-person event sometime in the fall. We would like to wait another month before choosing between the two options, in the hope that the situation will be clearer by then. We plan to provide another update in late June. The abstract submission system remains open. We have extended the abstract submission deadline to August 1, for now. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or suggestions regarding this event.

Welcome to the website of the 2021 edition of CanQueue—the Canadian workshop for queueing theory and related fields. The workshop will take place on Friday, August 13th and Saturday, August 14th in Montréal, Québec, at HEC Montréal.

The conference is one of the major queueing conferences in North America. The first workshop was organized by Dr. A.S. Alfa at the University of Manitoba in 1999, and the name CanQueue has been associated with these meetings since the 2000 edition in London, Ontario. The goal of the conference is to promote research and applications of queueing theory.

This annual conference provides an important platform for people, including leading Canadian and international queueing theorists, applied probabilists, researchers in other areas, and students. We welcome presentations of new research findings or work-in-progress and we encourage discussion of research collaboration within and across disciplines. Submissions from faculty members and graduate students will be warmly received.

Abstract submission deadline: August 1st, 2021

Co-chairs: Yichuan Ding and Armann Ingolfsson.
