Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry has just published a new special issue on Mathematical Methods in Reliability (MMR13). The special issue was guest edited by Maxim Finkelstein and consists of nine invited papers based on corresponding talks given at the 8th International Conference MMR2013 (Mathematical methods in Reliability). The conference took place in Stellenbosch, South Africa on 1-4 June 2013. The papers represent a diverse range of relevant topics in modern reliability theory. All articles in the special issue are free to read until 30 June 2015.

The MMR conferences focus on all aspects of mathematical methods in reliability and risk, as well as their applications to various engineering, including astronautics, aeronautics, automobile, communication, computer network, electronics, and automation instrument. As a major international forum on reliability and risk, it attracts increasing number of researchers from many different countries worldwide. This time more than 140 delegates attended the conference.

The theme of MMR2013 was ‘Reliability: A View of the Past and Ideas for the Future’, with the aim of enhancing international exchanges and promoting advances in reliability/risk theories and techniques, as well as organizing an international forum on emerging issues in reliability engineering and risk management.

The 9th International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Reliability (MMR2015) will take place in Tokyo, Japan, on 1-4 June 2015. The theme of MMR2015 is “Advances in Reliability Theory and Engineering in Big Data Era.”
