Call for Contributions (Extended Abstracts)

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend and contribute to the 9th International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Reliability (MMR2015) which will take place in Tokyo, Japan, on June 1-4, 2015, hosted by the Reliability Engineering Association of Japan.

The MMR conferences serve as a forum for discussing fundamental issues on mathematical methods in reliability theory and its applications. It is a forum that brings together reliability engineers in various fields, quality and safety experts, statisticians and data scientists, from within a central focus on reliability. As a major international forum on reliability, it attracts increasing number of researchers from all continents of the world.

Topics of MMR2015

The topics of the Conference include (but are not limited to):

I. Probabilistic methods

  • Combinatorial & Graph methods (fault trees, binary decision diagrams, Petri-nets, etc.)
  • Stochastic processes
  • Markov & semi-Markov analysis
  • Stochastic Petri Nets
  • k-out-of-n systems
  • Consecutive k-out-of-n systems
  • Bound and Approximations
  • Phase type distributions
  • Failure Delay Systems
  • Risk & Safety assessment
  • Monte Carlo simulation
  • Computer-aided model generation

II. Statistical models

  • Parametric, non-parametric and semi-parametric estimations
  • Lifetime data analysis
  • Reliability Big Data
  • On-Line Monitoring
  • PHM (prognostic health management)
  • Tests and accelerated tests
  • Return of experience
  • Bayesian Reliability estimation
  • Statistical modeling analysis of repairable systems

III. Applications

  • Computational methods, computer-aided model generation, case studies and application software in technical systems: power engineering (power systems, thermal and nuclear power plants), electrotechnics (power apparatus), electronics and mechanics.


We ask all delegates to submit his/her extended abstract in PDF format and also to EasyChair for MMR2015. The templates for both LaTeX2e and Microsoft Word are prepared. Please follow the Instruction for authors and submit your extended abstract to EasyChair for MMR2015.
