The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Mathematical Advances in Electron Microscopy " workshop from October 15th to October 20th, 2017.

The goal of the workshop “Mathematical Advances in Electron Microscopy” 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
information extraction 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
interdisciplinary collaboration.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide 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 in Banff 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). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT.
