In this Work-in-Progress paper, we study the dynamics of priority-queue networks by generalizing the interacting priority queue model of Oliveira and Vazquez [Physica A 388, 187 (2009)]. We show that the original AND-type protocol for interacting tasks is not scalable for the queue networks with more than two queues. We then introduce a scalable interaction protocol, an OR-type one, and examine the effects of the number of queues and the network topology on the waiting time dynamics of the priority-queue networks. We also study the effect of synchronicity in task executions to the waiting time dynamics in the priority-queue networks.
