First Announcement: 

  Conference on Algebraic Topological Methods in Computer Science

Department of Mathematics
Stanford University

July 30 - August 3, 2001

The application of algebraic topological methods in areas related to
Computer Science is an emerging field that is of interest to both pure
and applied mathematical scientists. The aim of this conference is to
describe recent advances, and define the fundamental open problems
in the field through a mixture of expository and technical lectures.  There
will be twenty lectures, on a variety of topics in the area.

The following is a preliminary list of invited speakers:

John Baez (Math, UC Riverside)
Marshall Bern (Xerox PARC)
Tamal Dey (CS, Ohio State)
Herbert Edelsbrunner (CS, Duke)
David Eppstein (CS, UC Irvine)
Michael Freedman (Microsoft)
Philippe Gaucher (CNRS, Strasbourg)
Eric Goubault (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique, France)
Jean Goubault-Larrecq (ENS Cachan)
Marco Grandis (Dip. di Mat., Genova)
Jeremy Gunawardena (HP BRIMS)
