Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Emerging Challenges at the Interface of Mathematics, Environmental Science and Spatial Eco" workshop from July 3rd to July 8th, 2011.




The proposed workshop investigates the impact of spatial and temporal heterogeneity on biological populations. This work poses important intellectual challenges in applied mathematics and theoretical biology. It is also a crucial necessary ingredient in understanding, predicting, and, hopefully, mitigating the impacts of global environmental change. The proposed workshop is, therefore, timely, both in terms of basic understanding and for developing tools that are important in applied arenas.






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).
