The Banff International Research Station will host the "Integral Equations Methods: Fast Algorithms and Applications" workshop from December 8th to December 13th, 2013.

Addressing many of our world’s most pressing environmental and scientific concerns (weather forecasting, earthquake and natural disaster modeling, pollution control, remote sensing, and alternative energy) requires significant computing power.
However, advances in computer architecture are not enough to make these problems tractable: corresponding advances in computer algorithms, and the rigorous mathematics that underlies them, are also essential. This workshop focuses on the design and implementation of cutting-edge, mathematically-based algorithms on solving problems of scientific and social importance.

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).
