After conference note

Dear conference participants,

it was a pleasure to meet you all at Applied Statistics 2013 conference and I would like to thank you for being there. Hope you enjoyed the conference as well. Please consider to attend AS2014 and spread the word about our conferences.

Maybe you received e-mails for publication in some journals, e.g. Journal of Mathematics and System Science. I have to inform you that this is a predatory publishing house using the conference information to solicit articles for their bogus journal This publishing house is on a black list of predatory publishers (see http://scholarlyoa.com/2012/12/06/bealls-list-of-predatory-publishers-2013/).

Please be informed, that Metodoloski zvezki / Advances in Methodology and Statistics http://www.stat-d.si/mz/ is the only journal officially tied to the AS2013 conference. If you intend to publish a paper, contact the editors.

Some participants are asking us if we can send them presentations. With your consent, we can put them to the web. Please inform us (info.as@nib.si, Subj: remove abstract ID) if you DO NOT ALLOW to make your presentation public and we will remove it. If you will not send any e-mails, we will consider you to approve publication of the presentation on the conference site.

Looking forward to see you at AS2014

Andrej Blejec


Conference announcement

International conference 10th Applied Statistics 2013 is organized by Statistical Society of Slovenia and University of Ljubljana in cooperation with Statistical Office of RS.

We are proud to run the conferences for ten years and dedicate it as an activity in the International Year of Statistics (Statistics2013)

AS2013 is sponsored by the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS).


The annual conferences of methodologists and statisticians were established in 1982.[...]

Following the very successful conference series of previous AS conferences, the jubilee 10th AS2013 conference will be again organized in Hotel Ribno in the vicinity of the magnificent Lake Bled.

The main goal of Applied Statistics 2013 conference is to provide an opportunity for researchers in statistics, data analysts, and other professionals from various statistical and related fields to come together, present their research, and learn from each other.  A four days program consists of invited paper presentations, contributed paper sections from diverse topics, and finishes with a workshop. Cross-discipline and applied paper submissions are especially welcome.

Full papers can be send for publication to Advances in Methodology and Statistics, a peer-reviewed journal of Statistical Society of Slovenia. For info contact the editors.
