About the Workshop

The 4th workshop on Computational Persistence will take place from Sep 23 to Sep 27 in hybrid mode at Graz University of Technology, Austria. This workshop provides a forum to exchange ideas on computational aspects of topological persistence that fertilize advances in topological data analysis.

The schedule will be composed of invited and contributed talks on computational aspects of topological data analysis. Contributed talks can be suggested in the form of an abstract of at most two pages. A scientific committee will check the submissions and make a selection.

We encourage on-site participation, but equally welcome submissions of researchers that attend remotely. To facilitate remote participation from America in particular, the workshop sessions will take place in the afternoon.
