A group of mathematicians and geoscientists from around the globe will meet at The Banff Centre next week, April 15—20, 2007, where the Banff International Research Station will be hosting a workshop on recent developments in Stochastic Dynamics and Climate Modeling. This event is co-organized by Professors Jinqiao Duan (Illinois Institute of Technology), Boualem Khouider (University of Victoria), Richard Kleeman (New York University), and Adam Monahan (University of Victoria). The workshop will focus on the newest results in Stochastic Dynamics and their interactions with climate dynamics.

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 US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
