The Banff International Research Station will host the "Harmonic Analysis in Convex Geometry" workshop from May 15th to May 20th, 2011.

In recent years convex geometric analysis has experienced an extraordinary high rate of growth and has been connected to new areas of mathematics and computer science. Tools from harmonic analysis have played a prominent role in convex geometry for a long time. The main goal of the proposed workshop at BIRS would be to invite the leading experts and young researchers in the area to coordinate the main applications of harmonic analysis to convex geometry and to develop new Fourier analytic approaches to the main open problems in the area.

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).
