The Banff International Research Station will host the "New Trends in Fluids and Collective Dynamics" workshop in Banff from July 23 to July 28, 2023.

Mathematics of collective behavior and the subject of fluid dynamics undergo a rapid merger where most fascinating breakthroughs have been discovered in recent years. These breakthroughs are based on our novel understanding of collective phenomena from the viewpoint of the laws of fluid motion. Pattern formations in animal swarms or clustering in social networks or even technological applications to decentralized control of unmanned vehicles are just a few examples that can be studied with the new techniques.

This workshop will bring together a diversified group of researches from both fields to share the knowledge and promote collaboration in this emerging and fascinating area.

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).
