The Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics will host the "Cross-Fertilisation of ideas from the Riemann–Hilbert Technique and the Wiener–Hopf Method" workshop in Hangzhou, China from September 11 - September 16, 2022.

In recent years significant progress has been made within the fundamental areas of complex analysis which resulted in development of the unified transform method, numerical methods for Riemann-Hilbert problems, advances in matrix Wiener-Hopf method, and conformal mappings of multiply connected domains. This workshop will bring together world-leading experts and new generation of researchers in Riemann-Hilbert problems and Wiener-Hopf method, and related areas of complex analysis, as well as the applications of these techniques in various areas of science and technology. The fruitful collaborations between pure and applied communities within these areas (from both Academy and Industry) will promote connections between different branches of modern sciences and will help in addressing complex technological and societal challenges.

The Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, 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).
