Employment and the discussion of concepts related to probability have gradually occupied a prominent position in the contemporary philosophical debate. In particular, it became difficult to understand contributions from areas such as epistemology and philosophy of science without minimally knowing definitions and results of probability theory. From this scenario, an interdisciplinary collaboration between philosophers and other investigators, such as mathematicians, physicists, statisticians, and computer scientists, has emerged internationally.

This Colloquium aims to contribute to the formation of an interdisciplinary working group on Philosophy and Probability in Brazil. Therefore, it seeks not only to gather and promote research in this area, but also to instrumentalize and prepare students interested in initiating research in it. Thus, the initiative encourages both a basic training in Philosophy and Probability, and research on related topics.
