Outline of the Conference ICMMA 2022

Aims and Scope The aim of this conference is to focus on the applications of topology to various research fields beyond the traditional boundary of disciplines. Experts in a wide range of fields, including topology, data science, engineering, life science and material science will gather and, through oral/poster presentations and discussions, promote the development of this interdisciplinary research field. Participation of young researchers is especially encouraged.
Organizers and Cooperation Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences (MIMS),
Interdisciplinary Research Project for Application of Topology to Engineering and Life Science
Date Mon. 28th - Wed. 30th November 2022
Venue Oral Presentation: On-line via Zoom webinar
