The 15th Brazilian Meeting of Bayesian Statistics (EBEB, in Portuguese) will be held in the municipality of São Sebastião, state of São Paulo, at the Beach Hotel Maresias facilities, with the following objectives:
EBEB has been held every two years since 1991, initially organized by groups of Brazilian researchers interested in the dissemination and growth of research in Bayesian Statistics in the country. The previous 14 editions of EBEB were held in the states of Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. In 2000, the organization of the EBEB became the responsibility of the board of ISBRA, the Brazilian Society of Bayesian Statistics and the Brazilian Section of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA). In 2002, ISBRA organized its first event, the 6th EBEB, in conjunction with the First Latin American Bayesian Statistics Congress (I COBAL), which was born out of the need to know what was being developed in Bayesian Statistics throughout Latin America and integrate research groups from Latin American countries. Since then, EBEB has gained greater projection and both national and international recognition, as attested by the participation of renowned professors and leading researchers in all subsequent editions of EBEB. In addition, the latest editions have attracted researchers from various countries, especially South America, who have considered EBEB as a good forum to disseminate the results of their research in their countries, giving this important Brazilian event with a more international character. National recognition is noted by the number of participants, around 150, and the variety of places of origin. The participation of students, especially graduate students, has also been significant.
Researchers, professors and professionals working in the area of Bayesian Statistics as well as graduate and undergraduate students in Statistics and related fields. An audience of between 150 and 200 participants is expected.
