Fusion Interference

Guest Editors: Prof. Daniel R. Jeske ( and Prof Min-ge Xie (

We are currently inviting contributions devoted to fusion inference for problems in business and industry for this forthcoming Special Issue. Papers should present either innovative methodologies fusion inference, or forceful applications of existing methods.

Deadline: 30th April 2016

Reference: Data Fusion Special Issue

Statistical Methods in Mining Industry

Guest Editors: Orietta Nicolis ( and Rodrigo Pascual (

We are also inviting contributions for a Special Issue devoted to the Statistical Methods in Mining Industry. Contributions should emphasize the novel use of stochastic models in analyzing typical problems in the mining industry, possibly supported by the analysis of real data.

Deadline: 30th June 2016

Reference: Statistical Methods in Mining Industry

All submissions will go through the standard, selective review process of ASMBI and must be submitted through our online manuscript service by the listed deadline. Please also follow the ASMBI Author Guidelines and indicate which special issue the paper is for by using the 'Reference' as requested during the submission process.
