Convegno ASMOD 2018 – call for papers


The Department of Political Sciences of University of Naples Federico II, Italy, is pleased to announce the Second International Conference on

Advances in Statistical Modelling of Ordinal Data

ASMOD 2018

which will take place on

October 24th-26th, 2018

Department of Political Sciences

University of Naples Federico II, Naples, Italy

The focus of the conference is ordinal data modelling. Ordinal data are ubiquitous in several scientific fields and an increasing amount of data is available to investigate perception and evaluation of many real problems. Thus, adequate modelling of ratings and preferences, judgements and opinions is a prominent issue in statistical research. After the successful experience of ASMOD2013, this Conference considers works from all scholars and academics on any topic related to ordinal data modelling and its applications. New approaches and innovative methods are especially welcome.
