The Algebraic Lie Theory workshop at the BIRS, Sunday, May 27 to Friday, June 1, 2007, intends to make serious advances in the core area of Algebraic Lie Theory and associated representation theory. It is anticipated that the activities of the programme will lead to a focalisation and popularization of the various recent methods and advances in Algebraic Lie Theory, with a view to applications in other
areas of mathematics and mathematical physics.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
