The Banff International Research Station will host the "Geometric Tomography and Harmonic Analysis" workshop from March 9th to March 14th, 2014.

Geometric Tomography is the area of Mathematics where one investigates properties of solids based on the
information about their sections and projections. It overlaps with many fields of Mathematics, such as
Convex Geometry, Differential Geometry, Functional Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Combinatorics and
Probability. The aim of the proposed meeting is to discuss most recent developments in the area and to
share new methods, especially those based on Fourier Analysis.

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).
