Algebra, Topology and Their Interactions

The fruitful connections between topology and algebra have been leading to fundamental progress in both areas. In particular, the study of algebraic structures using topological methods is a prominent research field linking together various topics. More broadly, this conference concerns both advances in topological algebra and recent interactions of topology with other branches of mathematics, such as category theory, group theory, geometric group theory, topological and algebraic dynamics on topological structures.
In this meeting, we aim to gather together young researchers and leading experts with significant contributions relying on similarly interdisciplinary methods in topology. We also hope that this first conference may become a regular appointment in the future.

The conference will take place on the 7th and 8th of September 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent uncertainty about the mobility restrictions, we are planning a virtual gathering (via Zoom). All the talks will be broadcasted live and they will be available to all registered participants.
