The Banff International Research Station will host the "Applications of Iwasawa Algebras" workshop from March 3rd to March 8th, 2013.

Mathematics abounds in the formal study of abstract structures which unexpectedly
has links within different areas of Mathematics, and also to other areas
outside mathematics. The study of Iwasawa alagebras constitutes one such
example of an area which has been discovered to have organic linkages with
other arcane areas of mathematics like Number theory, study of groups, etc.
The idea of the workshop is to bring together people working in these diverse
areas to interact and lecture on the central role that Iwasawa algebras
play in these different areas.

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).
