The Banff International Research Station will host the "Localized Multi-Dimensional Patterns in Dissipative Systems:
Theory, Modeling, and Experiments" workshop from July 24th to July 29th, 2011.

This five-day workshop will provide a forum for the dissemination of
current advances in the mathematical analysis,
computational modeling, and experimental realizations of localized
patterns and coherent structures arising in fluids, nonlinear optics,
chemistry, and materials science. The aim is to bring together
theoreticians and experimentalists working on localized pattern
formation problems in diverse applications and from different
viewpoints to uncover common analytical or modeling approaches that
either advance our mathematical understanding or help
explain key experimental results relating to localized pattern

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 U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
