MINUTES

The meeting was attended by 7 people (Kuhnt, Raabe, Pievatolo, Goeb, Volf, Engel and Ruggeri, coordinator). There was a report on the publication of the ASMBI (Applied Stochastic Modelling in Business and Industrial Statistics) issue with papers from the conference in Rimini (2002) edited by Polasek and Ruggeri, on the status of the issue of SMIJ (Statistical Modelling; an International Journal) with papers from the conference in Barcelona (2003) edited by Engel and Frigessi, and the workshop organised by Volf in Prague in May 2004. Participants discussed about the difficulty in organising joint activities and they decided to collect some information on advanced statistical methods and put them on the web site and organise a workshop on such topic at the next ENBIS conference in Newcastle in 2005. As a possible outlet for future papers, the Czech journal Kybernetika was suggested.
