School on Low-Dimensional Geometry and Topology: Discrete and Algorithmic Aspects
School on Low-Dimensional Geometry and Topology: Discrete and Algorithmic Aspects
18-Jun-2018 09:00
Age: 1 year

This one-week school, held at Institut Henri Poincaré in the heart
of Paris, is devoted to low-dimensional geometry and topology, from
both the viewpoints of mathematicians and computer scientists.  It
is aimed at graduate students and researchers in mathematics and
computer science interested in geometric or topological aspects.
This includes, not exhaustively, mathematicians working in
differential, Riemannian, or topological geometry; and computer
scientists working in computational geometry or topology.  The goal
is to foster interactions between these communities.

Main speakers (each giving one 90-minute lecture per day):
 * Jeff Erickson (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA):
   Two-dimensional computational topology (tentative)
 * Joel Hass (University of California at Davis, USA):
   Algorithms and complexity in the theory of knots and manifolds

Additional speakers (giving a presentation):
 * Bruno Benedetti (University of Miami, USA)
 * Benjamin Burton (University of Queensland, Australia)
 * Erin Chambers (Saint Louis University, USA)
 * Gregory Chambers (Rice University, USA)
 * Moira Chas (Stony Brooke University, USA)
 * Francis Lazarus (CNRS, Gipsa-Lab, France)
 * Hugo Parlier (University of Luxembourg)
 * Saul Schleimer (University of Warwick, UK)
 * Eric Sedgwick (DePaul University, USA)
 * Uli Wagner (IST Austria)
 * Yusu Wang (Ohio State University, USA)

Registration is free but mandatory, before March 15, 2018.  We
expect to be able to provide accommodation for some students and,
depending on availability, post-doctoral researchers; see the
webpage for more details when they become available.
