Geometric Aspects of Applied Topology

Welcome to the session "Geometric Aspects of Applied Topology" of the joint meeting of the Italian Mathematical Union, the Italian Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics and the Polish Mathematical Society which took place in Wrocław, Poland from Monday, September 17th till Thursday, September 20th 2018.

The session aims at presenting theoretical methods in topology that focus on applications in the sciences and engineering. The following broad research themes will be covered:

  1. Topological analysis of shapes, images, and signals.
  2. Topogical methods for motion planning and the study of configuration spaces of mechanical systems.
  3. Topological study of systems and networks.
  4. Topological Data Analysis and visualization.
  5. Combinatorial Algebraic Topology.
  6. Directed homotopy and concurrency problems.

Research on these themes is currently spread worldwide, but Polish and Italian researchers play a major role established by their pioneering work in the last thirty years and currently even increasing.
