ACAT Final Project Meeting
When: July 6-10, 2015
Where: IST Austria, Klosterneuburg, Austria


The last fifteen years have witnessed the emergence of Computational Topology from humble beginnings to a vibrant research enterprise, fueled from at least two sides: strong mathematical foundations and timely applications.

This meeting focuses on three areas:

  • topological data analysis,
  • stochastic topology, and
  • topology of concurrency and distributed computing.

While the core of the field is mathematical, it thrives on the interaction with other disciplines, including computing, neuroscience, biology, material science, and others.
