Computational and Algorithmic Topology will take place at The University of Sydney from 27 June 2017 – 1 July 2017
This interdisciplinary workshop at the University of Sydney will bring together experts and emerging researchers from Australia, the USA and Europe to report on recent results and explore future directions in computational and algorithmic topology and related areas. There will be a focus on problems in low-dimensional geometry and topology, and on the development of practical algorithms and their implementation. This is an area with an abundance of computational and algorithmic challenges, where practical solutions to many solvable problems, such as the homeomorphism problem, remain elusive. This workshop aims to stimulate interaction between researchers in order to bring about new collaborations on difficult problems that cannot be tackled from one viewpoint alone.
