The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "XX International Workshop on Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Flows" workshop in Oaxaca, from June 6 to June 11, 2021.

Fluids that exhibit physical behaviours which are not Newtonian are extremely common in nature and in industrial contexts. These occur in many processes underlying natural resource industries (mining, oil and gas). These are key in manufacturing industries such as polymer processing and in new environmentally-driven manufacturing products such as printing/layering in battery manufacture, coating flows, drug and droplet encapsulation and many bio-fluid applications (e.g. blood, mucus, semen, synovial fluids). This workshop brings together mathematically oriented scientists and engineers to work on these societally important issues.

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
