The 1st International Symposium on Uncertainty Quantification and Stochastic Modeling (Uncertainties 2012)  will be held from February 27 to March 2, 2012, at Maresias Beach Hotel, on the beach of Maresias , São Sebastião, a small seashore county located 180km northeast of São Paulo and 400km southwest of Rio de Janeiro. At the northern shores of São Paulo State one still finds beaches where human occupation is controlled and construction of high rise buildings is forbidden, lending the region a charming and rustic atmosphere. São Sebastião is a lengthy county squeezed between the ocean and the forest-covered mountains of Serra do Mar. The region is one of the largest  remaining patch of preserved Atlantic Rain Forest in the State of São Paulo. Maresias is one of the most famous beaches of São Sebastião, good for sporting activities as surfing or bushwalking, but also very appropriate for a relaxing chill-out.

The Maresias Beach Hotel resort is located right at Maresias beach, surrounded by the ocean and the forest-covered mountains. The hotel has 93 rooms, most of them with sea-view and balcony. The hotel is decorated to a friendly and informal style, where classic Brazilian Hawaianas are most welcome. The hotel convention center offers three conference rooms, the largest of them with capacity for up to 150 persons. Each room is fully equipped for videoconference. The center also offers a spacious foyer for coffee breaks and a supporting room. Wireless internet connection is available throughout the hotel. Many options for leisure and sports are also available. Activities vary from regulars such as beach volleyball, soccer, tennis, bushwalking and wind surfing to the most radical such as rafting and scuba diving. The historical city of São Sebastião is only 35km away, north of Maresias.
