Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Women In Analysis - A Research Collaboration Conference for Women" workshop in Banff from June 9, 2019 to June 14, 2019.


Our intent is to start a Women in Analysis (WoAN) research group with a one week collaboration workshop at BIRS. The workshop will host eight different research teams of five/six women each in different, but related, subject areas in Analysis and Partial Differential Equation. Each team will be led by internationally recognized women experts in these fields. By building teams that include women at all career stages, the workshop will form mentoring and collaborative networks that will strengthen the careers of all participants, develop new interdisciplinary research activities, train junior mathematicians, and increase visibility and professional connections of participants. In addition, it will offer an avenue for informed career development pertinent to women in analysis, and creating a database of information and professional opportunities relevant to women in this mathematical field.


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).
