The Banff International Research Station will host the "KAM theory and Geometric Integration" workshop from June 5th to June 10th, 2011.

{bf Press release: BIRS workshop on KAM theory and Geometric

The BIRS workshop on KAM theory and geometric integration brings a
number of
world experts in Hamiltonian partial differential equations together
with specialists in scientific computing, in a first of its kind
meeting. Numerical simulations of the principal differential equations
of mathematical physics play an increasingly important role in the
modern physical sciences, and they have an impact on a wide variety of
topics, including those as directly applicable as earthquake and
tsunami wave prediction, as well as the somewhat less earthly
sciences of galactic cluster formation or of general relativity
and cosmology. Mathematicians will be coming to Banff
from numerious international institutes including ones in Paris,
Barcelona, Texas, New York, as well as Canadian scientific centers
in Vancouver, Montreal, and the Toronto area. Some of the most
important topics for which solutions are sought include effective
numerical methods for ocean wave simulations, for solutions of
molecular dynamics equations, and for numerical general relativity.
The workshop participants plan to discuss the current state of their
respective disciplines, as well as the perspectives for collaboration
on the future directions of their discipline.

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).
