Ward’s influence on the queueing community and beyond is large, both through
his research and through his mentoring. Indeed, we have both benefitted from his
mentoring. We are honored to bring you this special issue that highlights some current
research influenced by Ward’s work. We begin this issue with a short paper by Ward
putting the work in this issue into a broader context.
