Topological Data Analysis


One of the biggest challenges of the information age is the mining and understanding of data. Mathematics plays a crucial part in the development of essential tools for this. In the last 10-15 years topological methods and in particular persistent homology has matured into a field of its own right which has seen many applications in image recognition, biology and network analysis.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together international researchers working in topological data analysis and in particular persistent homology to discuss new developments and challenges for the future.


The conference will take place in lecture room L1 (Friday) and L3 (Saturday) of the Andrew Wiles Building at the Mathematical Institute in Oxford.


Gunnar Carlsson will give the departmental colloquium at 4:00pm and participants of the workshop are invited to the colloquium reception at 5:30pm. The conference will close on Saturday by 5:00pm.

A detailed programme with titles and abstracts may be found here.

For slides of the talks, please click on the lecturer's name: Ulrich Bauer, Frederic Chazal, Heather Harrington, Rachel Jeitziner, Ran Levi, Claudi Lundi, Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson
