It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend and contribute to the International Conference on Mathematical Methods in Reliability (MMR2013) which will take place in Stellenbosch, South Africa. The conference will be held in the spectacular university town of Stellenbosch, which is in the heartland of the South African wine industry. The meeting will take place at the Stellenbosch Protea Hotel, Techno Park, Stellenbosch (http://www.proteahotels.com/protea-hotel-stellenbosch.html).

The MMR conferences are extending its geography. The previous ones were held in Bucharest (1998), Bordeaux (2000), Trondheim (2004), Santa Fe (2006), Glasgow (2007), Moscow (2009), Beijing (2011).

Stellenbosch holds the honour of being the most well-known town in South Africa and which is only 35 minutes away from Cape Town International Airport. History, culture, natural beauty, sport, education and wine has made the name Stellenbosch resonate around the globe as one of South Africa's premier tourist, wine, business and education attractions. The recorded history of Stellenbosch dates back to 1679 when this name was given to a small island on the Eerste river by Simon van der Stel, the then governor of the Cape. It is also the oldest town in South Africa and the second oldest formal settlement created after the establishment of Cape Town in 1652.

The foundations for Stellenbosch's heritage as an educational centre were laid in 1859 when a theological seminary was established. In 1918 a university was founded and to this day Stellenbosch University remains an internationally recognised education centre and one of the leading universities on the African continent.

The MMR focuses on all aspects of mathematical methods in reliability and risk as well as their applications to various engineering, including astronautics, aeronautics, automobile, communication, computer network, electronics, automation instrument, etc. As a major international forum on reliability and risk, 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 theme of MMR 2013 is Reliability: A View of the Past and Ideas for the Future . It aims at enhancing international exchanges and promoting advances in reliability/risk  theories and techniques, and organizing an international forum on emerging issues in reliability engineering and risk management. We sincerely hope that you can join us for a rich experience in this unique environment.
