Workshop on Topological Analysis of Medical Data

Gdańsk University of Technology, December 1–3, 2021

Aims and scope: Computational topology has been recently finding applications in a variety of fields, including medical data analysis. The purpose of the workshop is to stimulate dialogue between researchers that work in the fields of computational topology, dynamical systems, applications of mathematics, and the analysis of medical data. In particular, selected scientists from Gdańsk University of Technology, Medical University of Gdańsk, and Dioscuri Centre in Topological Data Analysis are going to deliver talks in the workshop and discuss current and future ways of academic collaboration and joint research projects.

Organizing Committee: Grzegorz Graff, Justyna Signerska-Rynkowska, Paweł Pilarczyk.

Speakers (in the alphabetical order):

  • Beata Graff (Medical University of Gdańsk)
  • Davide Gurnari (Dioscuri Centre in Topological Data Analysis)
  • Frank Llovera (Gdańsk Tech)
  • Grzegorz Graff (Gdańsk Tech)
