The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Geometry & Computation for Interactive Simulation" workshop from September 24th to September 29th, 2017.

What do interactive design and surgical simulation have in common?
The workshop "Geometry & Computation for Interactive Simulation" focuses on surmounting the underlying key challenges of interaction of geometry and computation. Progress in these key challenges promises better manufacturing and improved surgical training.

The workshop brings together leading researchers from computer science and mathematics to improve our understanding of the tools and theory needed for robust computation and realistic simulation that can only be achieved by a holistic approach.

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.
