Algebraic Combinatorixx 2

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Algebraic Combinatorixx 2" workshop from May 14th to May 19th, 2017.

Algebraic combinatorics is a branch of mathematics that utilizes interesting mathematical objects, like dominoes, to better understand problems in algebra and vice versa. It has connections to many other areas including computer science and mathematical physics. The goal of this workshop is to bring together women from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences to strengthen and increase their presence in the mathematical community. Participants will spend time engaged in many activities including listening to research talks, working on problems in algebraic combinatorics, discussing issues of particular importance to women in mathematics and building community.

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 disc iplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineeri ng 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).
