The Brazilian School of Probability (EBP) has been organized every year since 1997. It is an initiative of the Brazilian probabilistic community intended to provide an opportunity  to share new research ideas, directions and developments in the modern probability theory and related areas, to discover new possibilities for collaboration and an excellent opportunity for the students to begin their scientific life. Activities will include mini-courses and plenary talks by invited speakers, short communications and posters. Problem sessions, training sessions and round tables are also possible. The XVI EBP is the first one held at a remote area of Brazil. It provides a special opportunity for local students and researchers to get access to the cutting edge of modern probability.
