The Banff International Research Station will host the "Cohomological Realizations of Motives" workshop from December 7th to December 12th, 2014.

The subject of motives was invented
by A. Grothendieck as a way of unifying all of the deepest ideas
in mathematics relating to algebra and geometry.
The workshop is intended to cover recent developments in
the study of motives and their realizations with an emphasis to the connections to
physics, arithmetic and algebraic cycles.

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).
