This issue contains papers that were originally presented at the Third International Workshop on the Practical Application of Stochastic Modelling (PASM), held at the Universitat de les Illes Balears, Palma de Mallorca, in September 2008. The workshop was collocated with the 5th European Performance Engineering Workshop.
PASM follows in a long tradition of the application of stochastic modelling to real-world problems. Such models have led to significant advances in modelling theory, as well as insights into the specific problem areas concerned. Coming from a computer science background, PASM is particularly concerned with applications of specification and analysis techniques and tools developed for computer science, as well as computing and communications applications. In particular, the aim of PASM is to give a forum for which applies current well-developed formalisms (stochastic Petri nets, stochastic process algebras, layered queueing networks, etc) to real-world case-studies.
