Short description of the event: 

The 8th International Conference on Modelling in Industrial Maintenance and Reliability (MIMAR) will take place in Oxford, UK from 10 – 12 July 2014. 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.
We hope you can attend and we will provide a warm welcome in Oxford in 2014.
