Call For Papers
21st International Conference on Analytical & Stochastic Modelling Techniques & Applications
Methods of analytical and stochastic modelling are widely used in engineering to assess and design various complex systems, like computer and communication networks, manufacturing systems. The ASMTA conference is a main forum for advancing these techniques and their applications and aims to bring together researchers of academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in analytical, numerical and simulation algorithms for stochastic systems, including Markov processes, queueing networks, stochastic Petri nets, process algebras, game theory, etc. The conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE UK-RI Computer Chapter and by ECMS - The European Council for Modelling and Simulation.
The proceedings of ASMTA 2014 will be published as Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (approval pending).

Full papers reporting original and unpublished research results on ASMTA topics are solicited. Submissions should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere while being evaluated for this conference.
The proceedings will be published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Submissions may already be prepared in LNCS format and must not exceed 15 pages, including figures, tables and references; see the information for authors on Springer's web site for formatting instructions:
Please clearly indicate the corresponding author.
The paper submission for ASMTA 2014 will only be accepted through the easychair Paper Submission System: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=asmta2014.
Only papers in PDF will be accepted for reviewing. Submissions as e-mail attachment will not be accepted.
Consistent with standard practice, each submitted paper will receive rigorous peer reviewing. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Selection will be based on full papers.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. All accepted papers in the conference are expected to be presented and will be included in the conference proceedings.
