# Terceira Escola Brasileira de Probabilidade

Mambucaba – Rio de Janeiro, 1 a 7 de agosto de 1999

A comunidade brasileira na área de Probabilidade é um centro de referência internacional em relação à qualidade de sua produção científica. Ela conta atualmente com sólidos grupos, ativos em diversas subáreas, mantendo um intercâmbio permanente com pesquisadores da Europa, dos Estados Unidos e de vários países da América Latina.A realização das Escolas Brasileiras de Probabilidade, ao reunir anualmente o conjunto de pesquisadores brasileiros da área e renomados especialistas estrangeiros, tem permitido fortalecer as colaborações internacionais, introduzir novos temas de pesquisa no país e colocar os alunos em contato com os mais recentes desenvolvimentos.

A Terceira Escola Brasileira de Probabilidade será realizada no Hotel do Bosque em Mambucaba.

The Brazilian research team in Probability and Stochastic Processes has become internationally recognized through the high quality of its scientific production. Presently there are well established and very active groups working in several subareas. There is also a constant collaboration with researchers from Europe, United States and several Latin American countries.Consonant with these developments, the establishment of an annual international workshop on Probability based in the country has been of capital importance. These meetings, besides allowing a renewed exchange of ideas and the presentation to students of new subjects of research taught by top scientists, also contribute to the strenghtening of the international collaboration and friendship among workers in our field. The success of the two previous meetings testify to the ongoing accomplishment of these goals.

The Third Brazilian School of Probability will take place at the Hotel do Bosque in Mambucaba, Rio de Janeiro.
