The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Kinetic and Related Equations" workshop from July 5th to July 10th, 2015.

Kinetic models appear in such diverse applications as electron
flows in semiconductors, gene-gene interactions in biological
cells, (involving reaction-diffusion of the transcribed mRNA and
the translated proteins), inelastic collisions in granular gases,
radiative transfer in molten glass, traffic flows on single and
multi-lane freeways, turbulence models, the modelling of animal
swarms or flocks, computational neuroscience, crowd dynamics,
and even kinetic models for trade exchange and distribution of
wealth, with applications in finance.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide 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 in Banff 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). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT.
