Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Thin Liquid Films and Fluid Interfaces: Models, Experiments and Applications" workshop from December 9th to December 14th, 2012.




This multidisciplinary workshop at BIRS is focused on recent developments in the mathematics of thin film flow, with connections to experiments and applications. The workshop will bring together mathematicians, physicists and engineers at the forefront of research in experiments, mathematical analysis, modeling, and computational fluid dynamics to work on areas of common interest including thin films and free surface flows, the dynamics of droplets, applications to biology and medicine, and industrial applications.



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).
