The Banff International Research Station will host the "Multiscale Models for Complex Fluids: Modeling and Analysis" online workshop from November 22 to November 27, 2020.

Complex fluids are ubiquitous in nature and in various fields of human activity. Blood circulates in the human body, all kinds of foams, suspensions and emulsions are encountered in pharmaceutical and food industry, paints are met everywhere in mechanical and civil engineering. It is a challenging task to describe the behaviour of such fluids, as it depends heavily on the small-scale structures inside the fluid. Given the complexity and diversity of problems in this field, there is hardly any opportunity for researchers to meet and exchange ideas.

The current workshop is designed to bring together experts in mathematical and numerical analysis as well as mathematical modeling and to create a well-focused environment in which they can discuss recent problems, models and methods developed in their respective fields.

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).
