XVIII Escola Brasileira de Probabilidade

Mambucaba, Rio de Janeiro, de 03/08 até 09/08

The Brazilian School of Probability (EBP) has been organized each year since 1997 by initiative of the Brazilian probabilistic community and planned as a forum for the discussion of new ideas and developments in Probability and related areas. It is an opportunity to detect new research directions and to establish new collaborations, and an excellent occasion for students to start their scientific life. The EBP has been organized by IMPA, UFRJ, IME-USP, IM-UFRJ, IMECC-UNICAMP, UFMG, UFPE… with the participation of IM-AGIMB and INCTMat, and has received support of several scientific societies and research agencies.

The 18th edition of the Brazilian School of Probability (XVIII EBP) will be organized by IMPA and PUC-RJ. The event will be held in Mambucaba, Rio de Janeiro, from 3 to 9 August, 2014.
