When network science meets topology: Torino hosts the new workshop Complex Simplex

Network Science has been very successful in providing simplified statistical mechanical descriptions of large complex systems. Topology, in particular computational and applied topology, has found large use in computer graphics, robotics, biology and chemistry. Until recently, though, these two fields have had little interaction due to differing languages and domains of applications.

Complex Simplex: Topological and Network Data Science Workshop is a new event organized by ISI Foundation and Politecnico di Torino that brings together leading experts in network science and computational topology to share their latest results and problems. The goal is to challenge theoreticians to understand and meet the key questions raised by domain-specific problems, and for specialists to explore which current theoretical challenges are of greatest and immediate importance for applications.

Organized by ISI Foundation Research Leader Giovanni Petri and ISI Senior Researcher Francesco Vaccarino (Politecnico di Torino), the two-day workshop will be hosted by Politecnico di Torino (14th October) and by ISI Foundation (15th October), gathering international experts coming from universites and research institutes in Italy, Portugal, UK and the US.
