During the 17th edition of the Brazilian School of Probability, the organizers have announced their wish of having a special volume related to this meeting. We can now make its official announcement and call for papers.

A few words about the volume and its relation to the school:

The XVII EBP celebrated a long standing 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 at the Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics, having Enza Orlandi (Roma Tre), Glauco Valle (UFRJ), 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 to authors:


Deadline for submissions:

March 10, 2014.

Papers should be submitted by the electronic system of the journal (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 (orlandi@mat.uniroma3.it, eulalia@im.ufrj.br, glauco.valle@im.ufrj.br) informing about your submission.

The articles should be of the highest quality, and all texts will be peer refereed.
