The Banff International Research Station will host the "Geometric and Structural Graph Theory" workshop from August 20th to August 25th, 2017.

The workshop on Geometric and Structural Graph Theory brings together world experts working on geometric, topological and structural aspects of graph theory. This area of pure mathematics has distinctive applications in theoretical computer science, in information visualization, discrete optimization and the theory of algorithms.

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 disc
iplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineeri
ng 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).
