The Banff International Research Station will host the "Algorithms for Linear Groups" workshop from November 16th to November 21st, 2014.

Since its birth, Computational Group
Theory has proved to be a fertile area for the
development of effective computational techniques,
which have been applied in diverse areas of mathematics,
science and engineering; these include coding theory,
design theory, integer programming, crystallography,
algebraic number theory, and topology.
It provides an important bridge between
abstract algebra and other sciences
and engineering. The aim of this meeting is to bring
together a combination of
leading and young researchers
on computations with linear groups, for the purpose of
exploring new directions for research in the light of
significant recent advances.

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).
