The Banff International Research Station will host the "Algebraic design theory with Hadamard matrices: applications, current trends and future directions" workshop from to .

This workshop will bring together internationally renowned
mathematicians to discuss recent advances, challenges, and
possible future strategies in algebraic design theory, with a
special focus on Hadamard matrices and their generalizations.
The subject of intense research interest due to their optimal
nature and innate mathematical beauty, these matrices have
applications in quantum information theory, coding theory, and
other areas related to communications. We will develop effective
methods of attack on a range of outstanding problems; this includes
a famous unresolved conjecture first stated more than a 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).
