TGDA@OSU TRIPODS Center Workshop on
"Theory and Foundations of TGDA"


When: May 21 to 25, 2018.

Venue: MBI auditorium. Jennings Hall 3rd Floor, 1735 Neil Ave.

Theme: Topological and geometric ideas have already shown promises in producing novel perspectives and powerful algorithms for analyzing complex and diverse data. As the theory and foundations of topological data analysis continue to mature, we are presented with great opportunities to consolidate existing synergy as well as to establish new connections and collaborations among computational scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians, so as to form new perspectives and develop novel methodologies / algorithms for modern data analysis. This workshop presents a timely platform to help achieve these goals.

Information: See below for Registration, Funding, Lodging, and Travel.

Scientific Committe: Peter Bubenik and Larry Wasserman.

Organizers: Tamal Dey, Matthew Kahle, Sebastian Kurtek, Facundo Mémoli, David Sivakoff and Yusu Wang.

Confirmed speakers: TBA
