Geometric Data Analysis, U Chicago, May 20-23 2019

Conference on Geometric Data Analysis, May 20-23, 2019, on the University of Chicago main campus in Hyde Park.

This conference will bring together experts from around the world in the combination of geometrical or topological methods with probabilistic and statistical ones for the study of data.  Different ideas have been found valuable in the handling of different kinds of data, and we hope to promote discussions of what works and what fails, and when and why.
