ACA 2015SPECIAL SESSION:

ABSTRACT OF THE SESSION

Algebraic Topology was in its origin an area of pure mathematics with deep algebraic and geometrical roots, which has had an intense development in the last 120 years. However, in this period this discipline has become the core of several areas of application-oriented research using algebraic topology methods in biology, statistics, engineering, computer sciencesâ€¦ The growing number of these interactions has given rise to the field of applied and computational algebraic topology.

This session is therefore mainly devoted to the computational aspects of this emerging field in all possible directions which include, but are not restricted to:

Computational algebraic topology

Computational homological algebra

Computational topological dynamics

Coding theory and cohomology of groups

Topological Image analysis and processing

Topological data analysis

Stochastic algebraic topology

Topological pattern recognition

Topological robotics

Concurrency and distributed computing

Thus, as a sequel of the successful sessions held in ACA2010, ACA2011 and ACA2013 on the same subject held, our aim is to welcome contributions with an active interest in potential and actual applications of algebraic topology in the lines above as well as the computational techniques and problems related to algorithmic algebraic topology.

IMPORTANT DATES:

It is planned to have 12-15 half an hour contributed talks in the session. If you are interesting in giving a talk, abstracts or extended abstracts (up to two pages, including references) must be submitted in electronic format as

It is planned to compile an electronic (PDF) book of abstracts for the entire meeting ACA2015.

Please use the following LaTex templatefor your abstract.

There will be a volume of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics series devoted to ACA 2015 (see this link
for more info). For the volume we welcome full versions of papers
presented at any of the ACA2015 Special Sessions. Individual
contributions will be all refereed to the high quality standards of
leading journals in the field. We will announce with enough time the
deadline date of submission asap. The submission of full versions for
this volume is planned to be by end September, 2015.
