2020-09-26 through 2020-09-27
University of British Columbia and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS)
Online from Vancouver, BC; Canada

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Ben Williams


The Cascade Topology Seminar is a semi-annual conference ordinarily serving topologists of all stripes in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada. This fall's iteration is being held online. It will consist of 6 topology talks spread over 3 days, in the morning (Pacific time). Everyone with an interest in topology is welcome.

October 2020

Midwest topology seminar - Fall 2020

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Mark Behrens, Bob Bruner, Paul Goerss, Dan Isaksen, Vesna Stojanoska


The Midwest Topology Seminar in Fall 2020 will be held in an online format. Three 45-minute talks will be separated by two 30-minute coffee breaks. The breaks will be structured to provide an opportunity for small group conversation in breakout rooms.

The Thirteenth Annual Binghamton University Graduate Conference in Algebra and Topology (BUGCAT) will be held online on November 7-8, 2020. This conference is organized and run by mathematics graduate students of Binghamton University. We are hoping that during this time of crisis, we could still provide an opportunity for graduate students to talk math, connect with other students and faculty, present your research and share our spirits. There will be multiple sessions with 30-minute talks given by students and faculties. This year we have three distinguished keynote speakers: Emily Riehl (Johns Hopkins University), Moshe Cohen (SUNY New Paltz) and Ben Steinberg (The City University of New York).

Registration is now open! For registration and other information, please visit our website. The deadline for submitting a talk is October 21st. The deadline for requesting funding is October 2nd.

Applied Topology in Bedlewo

gt.geometric-topology at.algebraic-topology

Banach Center
Bedlewo; Poland

Meeting Type: conference

Contact: Zbigniew Blaszczyk, Pawel Dlotko


Applied and computational topology, one of the most rapidly growing branches of mathematics, is becoming a key tool in applied sciences. It is making impact not only in mathematics, but on the wide interdisciplinary environment including material and medical sciences, data science, robotics. Building upon successful conferences held in Bedlewo in 2013 and 2017, the next edition of Applied Topology in Bedlewo will take place in 2021. Similarly as before, our aim is to bring together scientists from all over the world working in various fields of applied topology. This time we will focus on:

  • random topology,
  • topological methods in combinatorics,
  • topological data analysis and shape descriptors,
  • topological analysis of time-varying data in biology, engineering and finance,
  • topological and geometrical descriptors of porous materials.

Lattices and Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups: Geometric and Computational Viewpoints

2021-10-03 through 2021-10-08

A lattice is a discrete collection of regularly ordered points in space. Lattices are everywhere around us, from the patterned stacked arrangements of fruits and vegetables at the grocery to the regular networks of atoms in crystalline compounds. Today lattices find applications throughout mathematics and the sciences, applications ranging from chemistry to cryptography and Wi-Fi networks.

The focus of this meeting is the connections between lattices and number theory and geometry. Number theory, one of the oldest branches of pure mathematics, is devoted to the study properties of the integers and more sophisticated number systems. Lattices and number theory have many deep connections. For instance using number theory it was recently demonstrated that certain packings of balls in high dimensions are optimally efficient. Lattices also appear naturally when one studies certain spaces that play an important role in number theory; one of the main focuses of this meeting is to investigate computational and theoretical methods to understand such spaces and to expand the frontier of our algorithmic knowledge in working with them.

Cohomology of Arithmetic Groups: Duality, Stability, and Computations

The cohomology of arithmetic groups is the study of the properties of ``holes'' in geometric spaces that contain information about number theory. The workshop will bring together mathematicians with expertise in number theory, topology, and geometric group theory to tackle these problems and explore recent developments.
