The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Mexican Mathematicians in the World: Perspectives and Recent Contributions" workshop from June 10th to June 15th, 2018.

The biennial conference “Mexican Mathematicians in the World” connects Mexican mathematicians residing abroad with their counterparts in Mexico by showcasing state-of-the-art research of promising and well-established Mexican mathematicians, and by fostering focused, in-depth discussions about different aspects of the overall situation of mathematics in Mexico.

This conference aims to raise the academic profile and visibility of Mexican mathematics within the international scientific community, and to strengthen the individual and institutional links among Mexican mathematicians and Mexican institutions.

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.
