The Banff International Research Station will host the “Affine Convex Geometric Analysis” workshop next week, January 11 - January 16, 2009. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in areas connected to affine convex geometric analysis. The goal is to intensify interaction between different groups. The workshop gives participants the opportunity to present the current state of their research in extended sessions and to provide a forum for discussions with the objective of new collaborations and future research across the various fields. In particular, the workshop will provide an opportunity for young researchers to interact with people from related fields and form new connections.

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 US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologí–a (CONACYT).
