Since 1981, ASMDA aims to serve as the interface between Stochastic
Modeling and Data Analysis and their real life
applications particularly in Business, Finance and Insurance, Management,
Production and Reliability, Biology and Medicine.
Our main objective is to
publish papers, both theoretical or practical,
presenting new results having potential for solving real-life problems.
Another important objective is to present new methods for solving these
problems by analyzing the relevant data. Also, the use of recent advances in
different fields, will be promoted such as for
example, new optimization and statistical methods, data warehouse, data
mining and knowledge systems, computing-aided decision supports and neural
The role played by ASMDA as interface between theory and practice means
that the symposia are of great interest for both the academic and business
worlds. The high standards of the meetings are guaranteed by strong
international scientific committees and by a permanent world-wide ASMDA Committee.
international ASMDA Symposia were organized in
Brussels (1981, 1983, 1985), Belgium, in Nancy (1988), France, in Granada
(1991), Spain, in Chania (1993), Greece, in
Dublin (1995), Ireland, in Anacapri (1997),

The Conference 2013 will
focus on new trends in theory, applications and software of Applied
Stochastic Models and Data Analysis. ASMDA 2013
will take place in Mataro near Barcelona, Spain.
Particular interest will
be given to interesting applications in engineering, productions and
services (maintenance, reliability, planning and control, quality control,
finance, insurance, management and administration, inventory and logistics,
marketing, environment, human resources, biotechnology, medicine,
