The Banff International Research Station will host the "Imaging and Modeling in Electron Microscopy - Recent Advances" workshop from May 18th to May 23rd, 2014.

The goal of the workshop “Imaging and Modeling in Electron Microscopy - Recent Advances” is to connect mathematicians together with specialists in imaging, material science, and electron microscopy to advance modeling, simulation and analysis by incorporating state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools and methods in electron microscopy. This workshop will provide the opportunity to present and exchange ideas, share data, and introduce new tools and develop new imaging and sensing paradigms needed in a variety of fields.

The participants of the workshop will share their latest results in processing data received from a variety of probes exploring materials at the atomic level with application in materials and life sciences, such as scanning transmission electron microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy, and electron tomography. An important focus will be the development of a roadmap to couple instrumentation with advanced mathematical tools and models and open up new areas to imaging.

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).
