Special Session on Computational Topology at the AMS-UMI Meeting in Palermo, July 2024

It is a pleasure to announce the special session “Computational Topology: Foundations, Algorithms, and Applications” (https://sites.google.com/view/ams-umi-computationaltopology/home-page), which will be held at the University of Palermo (Italy) from the 23rd to the 24th of July 2024 as a part of the “AMS-UMI International Joint Meeting” (https://umi.dm.unibo.it/jm-umi-ams/) taking place from the 23rd to the 26th of July 2024.

On that occasion, we want to valorize three distinct, but tightly intertwined directions within computational topology: the investigation of the mathematical foundations of the subject, the quest for creating higher-performance algorithms, and the paths for new applications that those tools have opened. On the other hand, we intend to bring together well-established researchers and early-career mathematicians, enhancing the exchange of ideas and promoting collaborations between different communities.

The confirmed speakers are:
Clemens Bannwart (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia)
Ulrich Bauer (Technical University of Munich)
Bruno Benedetti (University of Miami)
Håvard Bakke Bjerkevik (University at Albany)
Thomas Chaplin (University of Oxford)
Patrizio Frosini (University of Bologna)
Barbara Giunti (University at Albany)
Maria Antonietta Pascali (ISTI-CNR)
Matteo Pegoraro (Aalborg University)
Jose Perea (Northeastern University)
Érika Roldán Roa (Max Planck Institute)
Stefania Sardellitti (Sapienza University of Rome)
Nicholas Scoville (Ursinus College)
Francesca Tombari (Max Planck Institute)
Francesco Vaccarino (Polytechnic University of Turin)
Žiga Virk (University of Ljubljana)
Bei Wang (University of Utah)
Lori Ziegelmeier (Macalester College)

Participants are required to register for the main conference at this link: https://umi.dm.unibo.it/jm-umi-ams/registration/.

We hope to see you in Palermo!

  1. Is there any financial support available from AMS, UMI or the University for those who can’t afford to attend?
