The Banff International Research Station will host the "SYZ mirror symmetry" workshop in Banff from Sunday June 19 to Sunday June 26, 2016.

Mirror symmetry is a deep duality between two types of geometries of totally different nature. Since its discovery by string theorists it astonished many mathematicians again and again by its powerful predictions in enumerative geometry.

SYZ and homological mirror symmetry are two major unsolved problems in the field. The aim of this Focused Research Group is to study the various related topics in geometry, including Lagrangian torus fibrations, semi-classical analysis, non-commutative geometry and moduli theory.

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).
