Synopsis: 

This workshop at the University of Sydney will bring together experts and emerging
researchers from Australia, the USA and Europe to report on recent results and explore
future directions in computational and algorithmic topology.  There will be a focus on
problems in low-dimensional geometry and topology, and on the development of practical
algorithms and their implementation.  This is an area with an abundance of computational
and algorithmic challenges, where practical solutions to many solvable problems, such as
the homeomorphism problem, remain elusive.  

Five of the ten speakers develop freely available software to assist in their
theoretical research or in the analysis of their algorithms and computational
techniques.  This workshop aims to stimulate interaction between researchers in order to
bring about new collaborations on difficult problems that cannot be tackled from one
viewpoint alone.
