The Banff International Research Station will host the "Geometry: Education, Art, and Research" workshop at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, B.C., from July 7 to July 9, 2023.

Geometry is all around us. The circles and triangles of the Ancient Greeks have never left us. Film, art, and architecture ha ve all been touched by mathematics and geometry. 3D printing, robotics, and origami are a new wave of geometry. At Geometry: Education, Art, and Research, leading researchers pair up with educations and artists to push the boundaries of contemporary geometry.

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. BIRS 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).
