The Banff International Research Station will host the "Neostability" workshop in Banff from February 19 to February 24, 2023.

Stability theory, in the sense of mathematical logic, consists of a collection of technical methods first developed to address the logical problem of classifying abstract models of mathematical theories. Stability theory has proven to be applicable to other mathematical problems such as understanding rational solutions of algebraic equations. It has recently been shown that the techniques and methods used for the classification described above can be used in much more general settings with applications to other areas of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, additive combinatorics and extremal graph theory. Researchers at this meeting will study these developments to deepen these applications, and to extend the scope of stability theory to an even wider range of mathematical theories.

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).
