Welcome to SMRLO-2019


  The Third International Symposium on Stochastic Models in Reliability Engineering, Life Sciences and Operations Management (SMRLO’19), a forum for exchanging and sharing new ideas and knowledge on stochastic modeling in reliability engineering, life science and operations management, will take place from May 28-31, 2019 in Beijing, China. We sincerely invite you to join us for this conference.


The SMRLO’19 focuses on Stochastic Modeling from theory to applications on three directions:

●Stochastic Modeling in Quality and Reliability

●Stochastic Modeling in Life Science

●Stochastic Modeling in Operations Management
