Aims and Scope

The purpose of the workshop is to take an application-driven approach to Multidimensional Persistence including participants from a variety of backgrounds including statistics, algebra, computer science and those who have already applied persistence in other disciplines.

General Information

The workshop will be held 22-26 of August 2016 at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The workshop will be structured with talks in the mornings and time in the afternoons for discussion. It will be a small conference (about 30 participants) with an environment designed for collaboration.

Non-local participants are staying at the SwissTech Hotel . The talks are held in the Mathematics Building in room MA A1 10.
