The Banff International Research Station will host the "Geometric and topological graph theory" workshop from September 29th to October 4th, 2013.

The workshop on Geometric and topological graph theory brings together world experts working on geometric and topological aspects of graph theory. This area of pure mathematics has distinctive applications in theoretical computer science, in information visualization, discrete optimization and the theory of algorithms.

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).
