Applied Topology and High-Dimensional Data Analysis

This conference aims to bring together applied topologists and statisticians that are curious about each-other's work.  We anticipate having two relatively-distinct groups: 1) topologists that have been working with applied algebraic-topological tools like persistent homology, 2) statisticians working in the area of high-dimensional data analysis, and researchers from fields that involve large data problems.  We aim to have as many general-interest talks as possible but as talks get more technical and special-interest we will have some parallel sessions aimed towards a particular audience. The other principal aspect of the conference is the first week has talks aimed primarily at a graduate student audience, covering the most basic topics in algebraic topology, persistent homology, and the basics of the fields people are applying these topics to, such as economics, brain imaging and genomics. 

For more information and registration see the conference website.
