How to Submit

We welcome submissions of abstracts about your recent research in any of the areas listed in Scope below. This may cover a recently published paper (or a series of papers) or work in progress.

To submit an abstract by Wed 14 February 2018, please log-in at StochMod 2018 at and then click on "New Submission" in the top menu. You will need to fill in:

  • For every author: First name, Last name, Email, Country, Organization, indicating as "Corresponding author" the author who plans to present the work at StochMod 2018
  • Title (please keep the title length within 12 words and avoid mathematical symbols whenever possible)
  • Abstract (please keep the abstract length within 300 words, avoid diagrams and references whenever possible, and use LaTeX notation for any necessary mathematical symbols)
  • Keywords (please list 3-6 keywords)
  • Topics (please select 2-3 most relevant topics from those listed in Scope below)
  • Whether the "Corresponding author" fulfills the requirements for Reduced registration fee

We aim at accepting all relevant abstracts for an oral presentation, subject to capacity restrictions. Although we do not limit the number of submissions per "Corresponding author", in case of high number of submissions we may reject some of these in order to be as fair as possible to all authors.


The scope of the StochMod meeting includes both theoretical advances in stochastic modelling techniques and relevant applications. The contribution may lie in the formulation of new stochastic models, in the development of new analytical methods, or in the innovative application of existing models and methods.

Theoretical research topics include but are not restricted to stochastic modelling and methods in:

  • Queueing theory
  • Markov decision processes
  • Stochastic processes
  • Simulation
  • Bayesian statistics
  • Machine learning and data science
  • Game theory and behavior theory
  • Stochastic programming
  • Approximation, heuristic and asymptotic methods
  • Robust and multicriteria decision making

The list of relevant applications includes but is not restricted to:

  • Service operations, such as healthcare systems and contact centres
  • Business innovations, such as sharing economy and online market places
  • Social networks and communications systems
  • Biometrics, epidemiology and medical decision making
  • Supply chains and manufacturing/production systems
  • Logistics and transportation
  • Revenue management and pricing
  • Routing, scheduling and resource allocation
  • Economics, financial markets and risk management
  • Energy systems
  • Business and marketing analytics
  • Humanitarian and non-for-profit projects

We also welcome contributions at the intersection of stochastic modelling with topics of other EURO Working groups, especially Network OptimizationStochastic OptimizationPricing and Revenue Management, Commodities and Financial ModellingData Science meets Optimization, and Project Management and Scheduling.
