The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Structure and Geometry of Polish groups" workshop from June 11th to June 16th, 2017.

The workshop focuses on the structure of Polish groups and more specifically topological transformation groups. These occur naturally as groups of transformations of particular mathematical objects such as infinite-dimensional spaces or manifolds. The workshop will bring together researchers in various domains of mathematics in which Polish groups appear to develop common tools to study their structure and geometry.

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.
