The Banff International Research Station will host the "WIN3: Women in Numbers 3" workshop from April 20th to April 25th, 2014.

Number theory has its roots in the study of the integers, but the
great variety of tools and techniques motivated by these ancient
questions are now allowing us to address questions intimately
connected to a wide variety of fields, from geometry to physics and
information theory. This workshop is a continuation of the previous
two successful BIRS workshops for women in numbers. It will bring
together women at all stages in their research careers, from senior
faculty to graduate students, to do new research in some of the most
important and vibrant areas of modern number theory, and to continue
to build a thriving community of women working 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).
