2 Day Workshop at BIRS — Canadian Queueing Theorists and Practitioners Conference
21 Aug 2020 - 23 Aug 2020 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Queueing theory is concerned with developing and investigating mathematical models of systems where “customers” wait for “service.” The terms “customers” and “servers” are generic. Customers could, for example, be humans waiting in a physical line or waiting on hold on the telephone, jobs waiting to be processed in a factory, or tasks waiting for processing in a computer or communication system. The CanQueue annual conference started from a workshop, organized by Prof. Alfa, at the University of Manitoba in 1999. Since then, twenty (20) CanQueue conferences have been held in Canada, including CanQueue 2002 at U of S; 2004 at UBC Okanagan, 2006 and 2011 at Banff, both sponsored by BIRS. It was a decision at the CanQueue2019, at Fields Institute in Toronto in August 2019 that CanQueue 2020 will be organized by us and held at Banff (based on the feedback from Canadian queueing community people).

Big Data Inverse Problems
18 Apr 2021 - 23 Apr 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
In recent years, big data has become a major challenge for the state of the art computational methods and algorithms that are used for extracting meaningful information. This dilemma stimulates the exchange of ideas necessary to generate new directions in big data inverse problems.This workshop intends to provide a platform for researchers from diverse backgrounds to discuss novel techniques for big data inverse problems with benefits to various fields of data science.

Efficient Simulation Algorithms for Viscoelastic and Viscous non-Newtonian Fluids
02 May 2021 - 07 May 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
The mathematical description of the behaviour of typical fluids, like water at room temperature, was one of the great scientific breakthroughs of the 19th century. Understanding and applying the equations that describe these fluid drove many developments in mathematics for the next 100 years. Later, with the advent of modern computing, new fields of mathematics emerged devoted to designing algorithms to simulate these flows. This simulation capability has revolutionised many fields of engineering: no car, aeroplane, bridge, or stent is built without it.

Diophantine Methods in Algebraic Dynamics
01 Aug 2021 - 06 Aug 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
Algebraic dynamics is the study of discrete dynamical systems on algebraic varieties. It has its origins in complex dynamics, where one studies self-maps of complex varieties, and now encompasses dynamical systems defined over global fields. In recent years, researchers have fruitfully investigated the latter by applying number-theoretic techniques, particularly those of Diophantine approximation and geometry, subfields which study the metric and geometric behavior of rational or algebraic points of a variety.
