The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Outstanding Challenges in Computational Methods for Integral Equations" workshop in Oaxaca, from May 31 to June 05, 2020.

As technology advances, so does the cost (both time and energy) of experimental design. For certain classes of problems (e.g. radar propagation, fluid flow, heat dispersion, structural modeling), in which the observed phenomena is well-understood and accurately modelled via the equations of classical mathematical physics, design by simulation can mitigate some of the costs associated with purely experimental design. However, in order to do this, advances in both the mathematical formulation of the problem and the computational algorithms used in their solution are needed. This workshop brings together experts in various fields of mathematics and computation to develop next-generation computational tools and algorithms that will bridge the gap between design by experiment and design by simulation.

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
