Press Release:

Analysis of Dislocation Models for Crystal Defects

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Analysis of Dislocation Models for Crystal Defects" workshop from June 25th to June 30th, 2017.

The workshop that we propose aims to bring together
experts from diverse communities that are working on
models for dislocations in crystals and on related topics,
in order to share their understanding of the problem from
their respective perspectives, with particular attention to the
rise of young scientists and to the active role played by
women of outstanding scientific level in this field.

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.
