Women in Mathematical Physics II (23w5073)



(Cardiff University)


The Banff International Research Station will host the "Women in Mathematical Physics II" workshop in Banff from August 13 to August 18, 2023.

This workshop aims to organise the first in-person "Women in Mathematical Physics" workshop. We follow the successful format of other "Women in..." workshops: several teams will work together on a particular research problem in a specific topic in mathematics and their connection with theoretical physics - proposed by the senior leaders. Projects include topics in algebra, geometry, number theory and topology. We will have ample time for research and introductory lectures on every research problem attacked by each team, and we will also include many activities to stimulate networking between participants.

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).
