    The participants regretted that the timing for the meetings of the interest groups was not good: the meetings should be brought back to earlier in the conference and not held very late in the last day of the conference. The coordinator (Fabrizio Ruggeri) reported on the current activities of the group: a special issue of Applied Stochastic Models in Business and Industry, edited by Polasek and Ruggeri, and a special issue of Statistical Modelling: an International Journal, edited by Engel and Frigessi. The former issue was almost ready whereas for the latter submissions were still possible. There was a discussion on ways to make the Group more active, including sponsoring conferences (e.g. one in Czech Republic in May, 2004). The coordinator will contact members of the Group to decide an action plan for 2004, with the idea of having the group more and more focused on new frontiers in statistical modelling.
