The Banff International Research Station will host the "Interactions between Descriptive Set Theory and Smooth Dynamics " workshop in Banff from March 27 to April 1, 2022.

The Banff Research Institute is hosting a remarkable cross-disciplinary workshop between two subareas of mathematics (descriptive set theory and smooth dynamical systems) that have not had historical interaction. This workshop brings together researchers of all seniorities, as well as women and underrepresented minorities in an innovative setting. The goal is to settle some of the most famous problems dating to the mid-20th century.

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).
