Welcome Message

On behalf of the MTNS2018 organizing committee, I am honored and delighted to welcome all of you to the 23rd International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of Networks and Systems at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong.

Our technical program consists of 4 plenary speeches, 8 semi-plenary speeches, and 40 invited/regular sessions and mini-courses covering a wide range of research topics in mathematics, networks, and system science and engineering.

The success of the symposium couldn't be possible without the help and support from many people who have worked with us in planning and organizing both the technical program and social activities. In particular, we would like to thank the Program Chair (Graziano Chesi) for his excellent work in putting together the technical program, the other General Co-Chairs (Daniel Ho, James Lam, Guofeng Zhang, Tao Liu) and the secretary of the conference (Huan JIN) for their dedicated and professional service, the Advisory Committee (chaired by Li Qiu) and the MTNS Steering Committee for their valuable suggestions and feedback, the International Program Committee for their timely review of the papers, and our sponsors for their financial support.

Although we have tried our very best effort preparing for the symposium, we believe there is still plenty room for improvement. Please accept our sincere apologies if any inconvenience is caused and we very much appreciate if you can provide us with your valuable comments/feedback.

Finally, we hope that you will enjoy MTNS2018 and wish you a pleasant stay in Hong Kong!

Ling Shi
General Chair (MTNS2018)
