[News from News Center] From August 21st to 24th, The 12th International Conference on Queueing Theory and Network Application (QTNA2017) was hosted by YSU School of Economics and Management in Qinhuangdao. Over 130 conventioneers from the USA, Japan, Europe, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other countries and regions attended the conference. Prof. Quanlin Li, YSU School of Economics and Management and Prof. Wuyi Yue, Konan University, Japan took the General Chairs of the conference. YSU President Hongmin Liu attended and addressed the opening ceremony.
QTNA has been held for 11 sessions consecutively in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, China, Vietnam, USA, New Zealand, and other countries and regions since 2006. YSU School of Economics and Management hosted QTNA2017. On the ceremony, Hongmin Liu introduced YSU to attendees and addressed the welcoming speech. He hoped that, taking this opportunity, all the conventioneers could communicate and cooperate with YSU.
