Itisourgreatpleasuretopresenttheproceedingsofthe15thInternationalConf- ence on Analytical and Stochastic Modelling Techniques and Applications (ASMTA2008)thattookplaceonthebeautifulislandofCyprusforthe?rsttime. The conference has become an important annual event in the ?elds of - alytical modelling and performance evaluation in Europe and internationally. Nevertheless, e?orts have been made year after year to raise the standard and the quality of the programme.This yearthe proceedings are published as partof Springer's prestigiousLecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. This is another sign of the growing con?dence in the quality standards and procedures followed in the reviewing process and the programme compilation. The conference was honored to have a distinguished keynote speaker in the personofRaymondMariefromIRISA/INRIA,France,whoisaprominent?gure ofthe analyticalmodellingcommunity inEuropeandworldwide.The conference had a high-qualityprogrammewith anacceptanceratio of 40%.The programme comprised 22 high-quality papers organized into 7 sessions. Almost every paper was peer reviewed by three reviewers from the International Programme C- mittee. The reviewers were truly wonderful this year, as well, and in most cases the reviewsprovidedvaluable comments thatcontributedto increasingthe qu- ity of the ?nal versions of the papers. In many cases, discussion panels were also organized when the reviews were not decisive. We would therefore like to give a special thanks to all the members of the International Programme Committee for the excellent work in the reviewing process and the subsequent discussion panels during the selection process.
