Tenure Track position in Mathematics at Wesleyan University

Sara Kalisnik says: The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Wesleyan University is searching for a tenure-track assistant professor. They are very interested in filling the spot with an applied topologist! Spending a few years there I can say that it is hard to imagine better colleagues or a friendlier working environment!

The MathJobs ad can be found here: https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/list/20329 with an application deadline of October 1 2022 for your application to receive full consideration. Details available on MathJobs.

3rd Workshop on Topological Methods in Data Analysis, online/Heidelberg, 28-30 September 2022

From 28th to 30th of September the Third Workshop on Topological Methods in Data Analysis will take place within the cluster of excellence STRUCTURES at Heidelberg University. The main part of the workshop will be a lecture and tutorial series by Bastian Rieck (Helmholtz Zentrum München) on synergies between persistent homology and machine learning. As a supplement, participants will have the opportunity to give short presentations on their own TDA-related work. The workshop will take place primarily online, complemented by on-site get-together opportunities in Heidelberg. More information can be found in the attached flyer and on the workshop’s webpage (tda.mathi.uni-heidelberg.de).

Registration is now OPEN. Please register via

Feel free to share this information with interested colleagues.
We are looking forward to your participation. Do not hesitate to contact us in the case of questions.

Best regards

CfP – APCT Special Issue: Random Topology, September 30 2022

Call for Papers on Random Topology

Guest Editors: D. Yogeshwaran (Indian Statistical Institute, India) and
Omer Bobrowski  (Technion, Israel),  e-mail: omer@ee.technion.ac.il
APCT Editor: Robert Adler (Technion, Israel)

Studies on the geometry of spatial random structures (e.g., random graphs, sets and fields) have naturally led to the research of the topology of such structures, forming the relatively new field of Random Topology.  Questions in this area are often motivated by the desire to explore higher-dimensional versions of classical lower-dimensional results, as well as by applications in Topological Data Analysis. This special issue will group together a variety of topics at the intersections of Topology, Probability, Combinatorics, and Statistics, with the aim of highlighting recent developments in Random Topology and related fields.  We already have commitments for a number of papers by some of the leading researchers in this area and we would like to invite more  papers exploring both applied and theoretical aspects of Random Topology. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

  • Topology of random simplicial complexes
  • Topology of Gaussian random fields
  • Higher-order Laplacians and spectral properties
  • Random walks on simplicial complexes
  • High-dimensional percolation
  • Random knots
  • Topological inference

Papers will be posted electronically as they are refereed and accepted.

Deadline : December 31, 2022

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the submission guidelines of the journal.

All papers must be submitted to the journal’s submission system. During the submission stage, please select “Yes” for the question “Does this manuscript belong to a special feature?” in Additional Information tab, then select a special feature “S.I. : Random Topology”.

Computational Persistence 2022, Online Workshop

In recent years, advances in topological data analysis have been fuelled by progresses on both fronts of mathematics and algorithms. This workshop intends to focus on the computational aspects of topological persistence that is central to this development. Diverse applications of topological persistence hinge on the capability of the algorithms to handle scale and noise in data. We hope that this workshop in its second year, termed as “Computational Persistence 2022“, provides a forum to exchange ideas on developing efficient, robust, application-driven algorithms backed up by solid mathematics.

The workshop is scheduled for one of the weeks of the year when Paris/Berlin/Vienna/Milan/etc. are 5 hours ahead of New York City instead of the usual 6. The preliminary schedule can be found here

Please register for the workshop and feel free to send the registration link to others who you think will benefit from attending the workshop, the zoom links will be sent only to those who register.

Dates: October 31-November 4, 2022
Venue: Online

3rd Upstate New York Topology Seminar

UNYTS 2022: 3rd Upstate New York Topology Seminar
Syracuse University, October 22, 2022

This is a one-day regional in-person topology conference focussing on algebraic and low-dimensional topology. There will be three plenary talks, given by Francesco Lin, Allison N. Miller, and Martina Rovelli, as well as parallel sessions. For these, we have an open call for speakers, with preference given to early-career participants (students, postdocs, and tenure-track professors) and to regional speakers (from the broad region of New York State and nearby). Apply to speak when you register (submit a title and short abstract there). 

We have just received news of funding from the NSF, mostly for accommodation, with priority given to early career participants.

Website and Registration: 

Important: To have an idea of the potential number of attendees, we would appreciate it if you could register by September 1. The deadline for requesting to speak in the parallel sessions is September 1.
