26th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

16-20 June 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece

APSIS 2014 - 1st International Workshop on Advanced Probability and Statistics in Information Systems


Modern Information Systems are associated with huge amounts of data and although research in computer science has produced highly advanced methodologies for analyzing them, new complex research challenges appear. Probability Theory and Statistics, on the other hand, are considered well-defined and mature disciplines that have evolved through several centuries now and became sound on the foundations of Mathematics. Probability theory and Statistics have offered innumerable theories, techniques and tools to all aspects of data analysis in the wide discipline of Information Systems. The aim of APSIS is to bring together scientists from different branches of Information Systems who use or develop advanced probabilistic or statistical methods in their research. We encourage contributions addressing novel and complex problems with the use of statistical analysis and probabilistic methods.


We encourage submission in the following research topics related to Probability & Statistics in:

  • Risk Management
  • Software Testing
  • System Reliability
  • Requirements Engineering
  • Information Systems Security
  • Databases and Data Mining
  • Social Networks and the Web
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Information Systems Project Simulation
  • Open Source Software Empirical Analysis
  • Process Mining


Papers submitted to APSIS 2014 must be formatted according to the LNBIP style. Formatting instructions can be found at Springer (http://www.springer.com/series/7911). Papers must be in PDF format with a maximum of 15 pages including text, figures, tables and references.
