The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Theory and Computational Methods for SPDEs" workshop in Oaxaca, from September 6 to September 11, 2020.

The BIRS workshop on theory and computational methods for SPDEs brings together a number of world experts in the theoretical analysis of these equations, which model dynamical systems disturbed by noise together with specialists in scientific computing, in a first meeting of its kind.

Mathematical models based on SPDEs play an increasingly important role in modern science, society, and industry. They have an impact on a wide variety of applications from biology and neurology to finance and engineering. Effective and efficient simulations of such models can only be done with a deep theoretical understanding of dynamical properties of SPDEs as well as of numerical algorithms. The aim of this workshop is to gather two sub-communities (theory and numerical analysis for SPDEs) to address challenges in our relatively young research field. Young talents as well as influential mathematicians will come to Banff from numerous international institutes (Austria, China, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA) as well as Canadian researchers (Edmonton, Ottawa, Vancouver). The participants of this workshop will present and discuss the current state of their respective disciplines. We also wish to stimulate a fluid communication between theory and practice of SPDEs, in order to initialize new collaborations on promising research directions in our area.

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
