The Banff International Research Station will host the "New trends on structural graph theory" workshop from September 5 to 10, 2010.

Two of the most successful projects in graph theory are the proof of the strong perfect graph theorem and Graph Minors project with numerous applications and extensions. They both involve deep structural results that gave rise to what is recently known as the Structural graph theory. The workshop will focus on new advances and new trends in this area of pure mathematics.

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 Tecnologia (CONACYT).
