The Banff International Research Station will host the "Inexact Optimization Theory for Resources and Environmental Management" workshop from to .

A two-day workshop on inexact optimization theory for resources and environmental management is to be held in Banff, Canada in the second half year of 2014. This workshop aims to introduce recent advances in integrated inexact optimization methodologies for addressing various forms of uncertainties associated with resources and environmental management systems. A number of compound approaches which have improved upon the conventional inexact optimization approaches with advantages in terms of uncertainty reflection, policy analysis and dynamic analysis will be investigated and their potential application to various cases will also be discussed. About 25 researchers all over the world (from USA, Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, China, Japan, and Singapore, etc.) have been contacted and expressed strong interests in attending this workshop.

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).
