Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics: Call for Papers

During the 17th edition of the Brazilian School of Probability (EBP), the organizers announced their wish to have a special volume of the Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics related to this meeting. They are now making an official announcement and call for papers.
A few words about the volume and its relation to the school:
The XVII EBP celebrated the longstanding friendship and scientific interaction between the group of mathematical physics and probability of Roma and L’Aquila and our probability group in Brazil. Since the beginning, a central role in this interaction has been played by Errico Presutti, whose leadership, determination, and generosity in promoting the discussion of various ideas has been crucial for the scientific lives of many of us, and for the development of these groups. It is for us reason of big joy and happiness that he has accepted to have this volume in his honor. We shall do our best to correspond.
The special volume will be published by the Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics, with Enza Orlandi (Roma Tre), Glauco Valle (UFRJ), and Maria E. Vares (UFRJ) as guest editors. The guest editors thank the collaboration and support of Nancy Garcia (Unicamp), editor-in-chief of BJPS.
Guidelines for authors can be found at http://imstat.org/bjps/mansub.html
The deadline for submission of papers is March 10, 2014.
Papers should be submitted by the electronic journal management system (EJMS), under the ‘special volume’ flag (to be created shortly). The indication of the special volume is needed to have your paper considered for this specific number of the journal. To be sure, you might also send an email message to the guest editors (e orlandi@mat.uniroma3.it, eulalia@im.ufrj.br, glauco.valle@im.ufrj.br) informing them about your submission.
The articles should be of the highest quality, and all texts will be peer refereed.
The Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics is an official publication of the Brazilian Statistical Association and is supported by the IMS. Since 2012, the journal published four issues a year, in February, May, August and December. BJPS publishes papers in applied probability, applied statistics, computational statistics, mathematical statistics, probability theory and stochastic processes. The Editor in Chief is Nancy Lopes Garcia, with Maria Eulalia Vares as Theory and Methods Editor, and Alexandra M. Schmidt as Applications Editor.

Welcome to the IMS Bulletin website! We are developing the way we communicate news and information more effectively with members. The print Bulletin is still with us (free with IMS membership), and still available as a PDF to download, but in addition, we are placing some of the news, columns and articles on this blog site, which will allow you the opportunity to interact more. We are always keen to hear from IMS members, and encourage you to write articles and reports that other IMS members would find interesting. Contact the IMS Bulletin at bulletin@imstat.org

What is “Open Forum”?

In the Open Forum, any IMS member can propose a topic for discussion. Email your subject and an opening paragraph (to bulletin@imstat.org) and we'll post it to start off the discussion. Other readers can join in the debate by commenting on the post. Search other Open Forum posts by using the Open Forum category link below. Start a discussion today!
