The Banff International Research Station will host the "Cascades Topology " workshop from April 9 to April 11, 2010.

The Cascade Topology Seminar is a biannual gathering of topologists
from the Pacific Northwest and Southwestern Canada. The diversity of
the seminar is one of its strengths, and topics of the seminar vary a
great deal within topology. This meeting of the seminar is
represented by contributions from string topology, knot and braid
invariants, stable homotopy theory and K-theory as well as a featured
talk on the solution to the Kervaire conjecture, which was recently

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 Tecnolog�a (CONACYT).
