St Catherine's College, Oxford, UK

Short description of the event: 

This event is the premier maintenance and reliability modelling conference in the UK and builds upon a very successful series of previous conferences. It is an excellent international forum for disseminating information on the state-of-the-art research, theories and practices in maintenance and reliability modelling and offers a platform for connecting researchers and practitioners from around the world.

Abstract and paper submission deadlines are listed below. All submissions are subject to rigorous review before an acceptance decision is made.


All submissions will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). Selected and extended papers may be considered for a special issue of IMA Journal of Management Mathematics, subject to further review. Selected papers may also be considered for publication by the journal "Mathematical Problems in Engineering".
