Welcome to the 4th International Symposium on Statistical Process Monitoring (ISSPM 2015) website. The ISSPM 2015 will be held on July 7-9, 2015 in Padua and it is organized by the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Padua, an almost 800 years old university. Padua stands on 40 kilometres west of Venice.

ISSPC/ISSPM conferences have already been established as the most prominent forum for international scientists working on the field of Statistical Process Monitoring (SPM). The conference aims (i) to discuss original and high-quality research and (ii) to bring together a limited number of SPM researchers and foster new collaborations.

All SPM related topics are of interest. Indicative research fields are: univariate and multivariate control charts, parametric and nonparametric SPM, Bayesian procedures, adaptive control techniques, design and optimization of control procedures, SPM for special types of applications (profile monitoring, multi-stage processes, high-dimensional data, services, health, etc.).

ISSPM 2015 will keep the successful format of the three first meetings, with personal invitations as well as pre-conference (on July 6) and post-conference (on July 10) tours.

Selected papers, after a suitable peer review process, will be published in a special issue of the Quality Technology & Quantitative Management journal (included in the Science Citation Index Expanded).
