Over the last decade, multi-physics problems coupled with interfacial dynamics have been a focus of research for several distinct applied and computational mathematics communities, including those interested in fluid-structure interaction problems, multi-phase flow dynamics, biological membranes and cell mobility models, and the study of pattern formation. The goal of this workshop is to bring together senior experts and junior researchers to foster communication between scientifically and geographically diverse research groups working on numerical analysis of multi-physics problems and to establish new links and joint projects.

The topics of the workshop will include numerical analysis of fluid--structure interaction problems, finite element methods for partial differential equations posed on manifolds and surface--bulk coupled problems and computational mathematics of interfacial flows.

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.
