Experimentation is one of the most common activities in scientific researches and industrial processes. An experiment is cost-efficient only when it is carefully designed and its results are correctly analyzed. The CEDA 2014 will highlight the most recent advances in the design and analysis of experiments and demonstrate their applicability to practitioners in scientfic and industrial communities. In addition, it provides an excellent platform to share research ideas among senior mentors, junior researchers and Ph.D. students/graduates.
