The Banff International Research Station will host the "The Geometry, Algebra and Analysis of Algebraic Numbers" workshop from October 4th to October 9th, 2015.

This workshop is bringing together experts and young scholars from many areas of mathematics to focus on
problems in the general area of algebraic numbers. In addition to the classical methods of field theory and
Galois theory, the scope of the workshop includes methods from algebraic and toric geometry, combinatorics,
dynamical systems, and potential theory.

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).
