Topology, Geometry, and Data Analysis Conference at OSU
When: May 16 to 20, 2016.
Venue: MBI auditorium. Jennings Hall 3rd Floor, 1735 Neil Ave.
In recent years topological and geometric methods have been been availed as new promising tools for analyzing complex and diverse data.
To broaden the scope of TGDA further we need stronger synergy among mathematical fields such as algebraic topology and algorithmic developments such as those in computational geometry. We also need tighter interaction with applied scientific domains.
This conference aims to bring together researchers from mathematics and computational and applied sciences in order to exchange ideas and consolidate synergistic activities through fostering collaborations.
Information: See below for Registration, Funding, Lodging, and Travel.
Organizers: Tamal Dey, Matthew Kahle, Facundo Mémoli, and Yusu Wang.

Registration and Application for Funding
We gratefully acknowledge funding from MRI and NSF.
Current PhD students and young researchers within 5 years of the PhD degree are qualified to apply for partial travel / accommodation support to attend the TGDA conference. To apply for the Young Researcher Travel Support, you should submit (i) your contact information, and (ii) your current CV via http://u.osu.edu/tgda/tgda-osu-2016-registration/. You should also arrange a letter of support from your advisor or other researcher familiar with your work and/or interests to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submitting your application is March 1st, 2016.
Keep in mind that if you are planning to apply for funding, due to NSF regulations, in order for us to be able to reimburse you need to book your travel on a US carrier.
The general registration deadline is April 15, 2016. However, since the capacity of the conference is limited (due to accommodation constraints), we encourage you to register as early as possible -- Registration will be accepted in a first-come-first-serve basis.
