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 mathematicians, probabilistic, statisticians and computer scientists from within a central focus on reliability. As a major international forum on reliability, it attracts increasing number of researchers from many different countries, including USA, Canada, South Africa, Japan, Norway, Sweden, France, Iran, Italy, Poland, UK, Russia, South Korea, Lithuania, Austria, and other countries from all continents of the world.
The ninth conference will be held at Tokyo Campus of University of Tsukuba, which is located in the center of Tokyo. Tokyo enjoys a long history of prosperity as Japan’s capital since 1603, when Ieyasu Tokugawa established his shogunate and named the city Edo. Today, with a population of about 13 million, it has grown into the largest of the 47 prefectures of Japan and indeed one of the greatest metropolises in the world. Tokyo is the center of various activities in Japan including politics, economy, and culture.
The theme of MMR2015 is “Advances in Reliability Theory and Engineering in Big Data Era.” It aims at enhancing international exchanges, at promoting advances in reliability theory and reliability engineering, and at organizing an international forum on emerging issues in reliability engineering and their applications. We sincerely hope that you will join us and share a fruitful moment in this unique environment.
