We are happy to announce an upcoming workshop: TAGS - linking Topology and Algebraic Geometry to probability and Statistics. It will take place on February 19-23 at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig.
The workshop will bring together researchers in topological data analysis, applied algebraic geometry, statistics, and related fields. There will be a number of introductory talks on each of these topics, with the aim of attracting participants who are not necessarily experts in these fields. We will provide a platform for discussing areas of common interest, methodologies extending between fields, and currently open problems.
Travel funding and accommodation can be provided for early-career participants such as postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. Applicants are expected to write a short letter of motivation and to kindly agree to present their work in the form of a poster. PhD students will further be asked to provide a letter of recommendation from their supervisors. The deadline for funding applications is December 1, 2017.
