Call for papers

The Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia) jointly with the RUDN University (Russia) will be hosting the International Conference on


The Conference will take place in Moscow, Russia, on 23 – 27 October 2017. It marks the 90th birth anniversary of outstanding Russian mathematician Alexander Dmitrievich Solov’ev, who made a significant contribution into the mathematical methods of reliability and queuing theory. This event starts a series of conferences aimed to discuss contemporary issues of analytical and numerical methods in probability theory and its applications, including reliability and queuing theories, special classes of stochastic processes, special topics of statistics arising in applications etc.

The Conference will bring together leading researchers in the analytical and numerical methods of probability theory and its applications. It should stimulate the discussions on the contemporary and future investigations in different areas of theoretical and applied probability. Also some problems related to the asymptotic methods of the analysis and to the history of mathematics will be considered.

Topics of the conference

All aspects of analytic and numerical methods in applied probability and its applications, especially in reliability and queuing theories, are welcome. The Conference will have 4 main tracks:

Track 1 – Analytical methods in probability theory and its applications
