Banff International Research Station - Now Accepting Proposals for 2012

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a joint Canada-US-Mexico initiative that provides an environment for creative interaction and the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the mathematical, statistical, and computing sciences, and with related disciplines and industrial sectors. The BIRS Station is located on the site of the world-renowned Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. It  provides a secluded environment, complemented with the necessary facilities, for uninterrupted research activities in a variety of formats, all in a magnificent mountain setting.

BIRS is hosting a 49-week scientific program in 2012.  Each week, the station will be running either a full workshop (42 people for 5 days) or two half-workshops (each with 21 people for 5 days). As usual, BIRS provides full accommodation, board, and research facilities at no cost to the invited participants, in a setting conducive to research and collaboration. The deadline for 5-day Workshop and Summer School proposals is September 27, 2010. Full information, guidelines, and online forms are available at the new BIRS website: https://www.birs.ca/proposals

In addition BIRS will operate its Research in Teams and Focused Research Groups programs, which allow smaller groups of researchers to get together for several weeks of uninterrupted work at the station. September 27, 2010 is also the preferred date to apply for these programs. However, proposals for projects involving Research in Teams or Focused Research Groups can be submitted at any time -- subject to availability-- they must be received at least 4 months before their requested start date.
