XIV EBEB - Brazilian Meeting on Bayesian Statistics - Rio de Janeiro

XIV EBEB - Rio de Janeiro

The Brazilian Meeting of Bayesian Statistics (EBEB) has been held every two years since 1991, initially by groups of Brazilian researchers interested in the dissemination and growth of Bayesian statistical research in Brazil. Three of the twelve previous editions of EBEB were held in Minas Gerais. Other editions were organized in the states of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Since then, EBEB has gained greater national and international recognition and projection, which is attested by the participation of renowned speakers and important researchers in all editions of the event. In addition, recent editions have attracted researchers from several countries, especially from South America, who have considered EBEB a good forum to disseminate the results of the research they carry out in their countries, giving a more international reputation to this important Brazilian event. National recognition is noticed by the number of participants, around 150, and by the variety of places of origin. The participation of students, especially graduate students, has also been significant.
