The scientific workshops on model-oriented data analysis and optimum design (mODa) provide a high-level international forum for researchers, professionals and practitioners to present and discuss recent advances, new techniques and applications in the field of optimum experimental design. In addition to that, one of its primary aims is to offer young researchers an opportunity to establish personal contacts with leading specialists in the field. Its specificity is that the participation is by invitation of the board only. For details, see mODa charter (pdf).

mODa is organized every three years, with the previous mODa11 held in Hamminkeln-Dingden, Germany. The 12th edition of the workshop series is coming to Smolenice, Slovakia.
