Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery 2014: Call for proposals

Email just received:

Dear Colleague,

This is the last call to submit proposals for the 2014 program of the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS). The deadline for 5-day Workshop and Summer School proposals is Friday, September 28, 2012.

Full information and guidelines are available on the BIRS website:

Proposal submissions should be made online at:

BIRS will again host a 48-week scientific program in 2014. The Station provides an environment for creative interaction and the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the mathematical, statistical and computing sciences, and with related disciplines and industrial sectors. Each week, the Station hosts either a full workshop (42 people for 5 days) or two half-workshops (21 people for 5 days). BIRS provides accommodation, full board, and research facilities at no cost to the invited participants, in a setting conducive to research and collaboration.

Future applicants may find it useful to know that in last year’s competition for its 2013 program, BIRS received 152 proposals for full workshops, of which 53 were accepted to run at the Station in 2013.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
