Press Release:

Material Evolution from Plasticity to Morphogenesis

The Banff International Research Station will host the " Material Evolution from plasticity to morphogenesis" workshop in Banff from June 11, 2017 to June 18, 2017.

The theoretical studies on material behavior can be applied to processes of material aging, where the group of material symmetries evolves, in some cases its main characteristics remain intact but in others, they change, giving rise to a process of morphogenesis. This can be applied to the study of biomechanics and biomedicine.

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).
