The Banff International Research Station will host the "Canadian Abstract Harmonic Analysis Symposium 2014" workshop from to .

Abstract harmonic analysis has evolved out of classical Fourier analysis; it deals with locally compact groups, their representations, and the Banach algebras associated with them.
Abstract harmonic analysis has had a strong presence in Canada's mathematical community for several decades. Since 1997, the emph{Canadian Abstract Harmonic Analysis Symposium} has been successful in bringing together researchers, from Canada and abroad, in abstract harmonic analysis and related areas, such as Banach algebras, operator algebras, and operator spaces.
This meeting will continue this tradition and provide a forum for researchers in the area---many of whom are at the junior level---for fruitful interaction.

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).
