Stochastic networks and stochastic geometry conference dedicated to François Baccelli on his 60th birthday
This three day event http://www.di.ens.fr/~blaszczy/FB60/ brought together about twenty invited talks given by leading researchers working on modeling and performance evaluation of computer/communication systems. Mathematical foundations of their work involve, but are not limited to, wireless stochastic geometry, information theory, discrete event dynamical systems, max-plus algebra, stationary-ergodic framework for stochastic networks. It was a wonderful occasion to celebrate the 60th birthday of François Baccelli, who has inspired the development of this field for almost 40 years. The organizers are grateful to all speakers and participants.
