WinCompTop: Women in Computational Topology 3
at EPFL, Lausanne (Switzerland)
JULY 17-21, 2023
Deadline for application: 1 Dec 2022
Application form: link
The Bernoulli Center at EPFL (Switzerland) will host the third workshop for Women in Computational Topology. These workshops are designed to strengthen the computational topology community by bringing together women as well as gender-diverse researchers at various stages in their careers (from graduate students to senior researchers) and from across the world, fostering research, collaboration, and mentorship between members of gender minorities in computational topology, offering them networking and research opportunities in mathematics and computer science.
Participants will spend one week working together in small groups to solve one of a selection of open questions in computational topology: WinCompTop participants will begin generating new results in collaboration with other participants. To achieve this goal, participants will start working together remotely before the workshop itself to prepare the background and, following the workshop, the research network will be maintained and strengthened by publishing a proceedings volume and organizing follow-up conferences or reunions for participants and other researchers in the area. Mentoring and professional development will happen both formally and informally. Preference for covering local expenses will be given to graduate students and early career researchers.
