Talk Title: WCFS Queues: A New Analysis Framework

Host: Jerrod Wigmore
Abstract: In this talk, I investigate four queueing models that are key to understanding the behavior of modern computing systems. Each was previously considered intractable to analyze. However, we discovered a subtle similarity between these models, which we used to prove the first analytical results for each of the models. Intended for a general CS audience.
Joint work with Mor Harchol-Balter and Alan Scheller-Wolf.
