Prior to Your FRG/RIT/SS Workshop


Prior to your FRG/RIT/SS at BIRS you, the organizer, should be receiving a letter of information requesting a list of participants and detailing the information contained on this page.

Invitations to BIRS events are made by BIRS. Thus we will handle the actual mailing of the invitations, as well as accumulating the responses, providing you with online access to the status of your participants.

Notice of change under PIMS Travel Support to BIRS

Over the past five years, PIMS committed substantial financial resources to offset the cost of travel to the Banff International Research Station, and to help facilitate the participation of young Canadian mathematicians in the BIRS scientific program.

This is to inform the Canadian scientific community that in view of the success of BIRS in recent years, and the need to redirect funds to other under-funded initiatives, PIMS will no longer be able to offer travel support to BIRS conferences. This change will take effect starting April 1, 2008.
