The Banff International Research Station will host the "Interfacial Phenomena in Reaction-Diffusion Systems" workshop in Banff from August 2 to August 07, 2020.

Interfacial phenomena are observed in many fields of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, biology and medicine. Examples include formation and motion of phase boundaries in multi-phase materials, propagation of population waves in ecology, and so on. This workshop focuses, among other things, on interfacial phenomena in complex environments, such as those in spatially and/or temporally heterogeneous media, those in random environments, and those in the presence of obstacles. We also focus on interfacial phenomena in biology and those related to geometry. We aim at developing new mathematical framework to deepen our understanding of those complex interfacial phenomena.

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).
