Algebraic Topology- Methods, Computation and Science 6 (ATMCS6)
- Start Date: 05/26/2014
- End Date: 05/30/2014
University of British Columbia
Applied and computational topology refers to the adaptation of topological ideas and techniques to study problems in science and engineering. A particular focus is on using invariants and methods of algebraic topology to understand large high-dimensional data sets. The further development of topological techniques for use in applications and the creation of new areas of application in the subject are amongst the goals of this workshop.
The workshop will bring together leading researchers in this emerging discipline as well as providing an opportunity for young mathematicians to get involved in it. In past years, the ATMCS conference has been very successful in providing a forum for cutting-edge research to be disseminated; attendance tends to represent a broad swath of the diverse research community which works in this area.
This is the 6th conference in a series on Algebraic Topology, its role in Computer Science, and its applications. The acronym changed interpretation for ATMCS 4 in 2010: before then, it was called Algebraic Topological Methods in Computer Science, and since then it has been Algebraic Topology: Methods, Computation and Science.
Previous conferences in the series are:
2001 ATMCS 2001, Stanford, CA, USA
2004 ATMCS 2004, London, Ontario, Canada
2008 ATMCS 2008, Paris, France
2010 ATMCS 2010 , Münster, Germany
Andrew J. Blumberg, University of Texas,
Matt Kahle, Ohio State University,
Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson, KTH, Sweden.
Venue: PIMS UBC- Earth Sciences Building: 2207 Main Mall
Accomodation: We strongly suggest that participants stay on campus due to poximity to the conference vennue. We are working with UBC Conference Accommodations to provide modest(standard and premium) single rooms for the duration of the conference. A promotion code will be made available in the spring.
Registration: Opens in Spring 2014
