Any questions or comments for the AATRN leadership can be directed to
We'd be happy to hear from you, as we are always on the lookout for suggestions and feedback!
We invite members of our community to contribute short videos (5-30 minutes) to the AATRN YouTube channel!
The video can be on any topic related to applied topology, broadly interpreted. For example, it could be a “This is my research” video, giving a short introduction to your research themes. Or, it could be a tutorial video explaining a topic in applied topology. Likewise, it could be an expository video advertising the work of the community (be sure to acknowledge the work of others appropriately, including figures). Or, it could focus on your latest research/teaching/outreach project. We invite you to come up with new ideas! Videos in any language are welcome.
Q & A
How do I submit a video?
Please click on the "Video submission form" button above and fill out the form. You will be asked to provide your name, your email, your video title, your video abstract (a short description to include on YouTube under your video), and a link we can use to download your video (we describe one way to create such a link, using We Transfer, in the form).
Does my video get posted to YouTube automatically and can it get removed?
Not automatically, but you will hear back from us within a week. We will briefly check the video to ensure it is in-scope. We don't think of the contributed video submissions as a competitive process - the more contributed videos we receive and that we can share on YouTube, the better! Even after posting the video to YouTube, we reserve the right to remove it if necessary (math errors are not necessarily a reason for this — math errors can be addressed in the video’s description). You may request that we remove the video at any point in the future, as well.
What if I have a longer video in mind, or a series of videos in mind?
That’s great! We encourage you to contact us at aatrn.director"at"gmail.com to inquire — we’d quite likely be excited to host your videos on our YouTube channel.
Propose a Speaker
Please fill out this form if you want to suggest a person as a possible speaker for the AATRN Wednesday Seminar. This could be yourself or someone else. The AATRN Speaker Selection Committee will consider your suggestion in their brainstorming process.
Criteria for Speaker Selection by the Speaker Selection Committee
The following is a draft description of how the AATRN Speaker Selection Committee selects speakers to invite — these criteria are still under development! We emphasize that there are many more qualified speakers in our community than speaking slots, so even if a person fits all of the criteria, they may not be selected to speak.
AATRN, in partnership with talented visual artist Kris Barz Mendonça, is excited to announce a line of AATRN gear! This includes a variety of topology-inspired t-shirts and mugs that can be purchased online and shipped directly to you. This initiative is not driven by profit or funding – we will not receive any money from your purchases – but it is a way to share pride in the applied topology community.
How can I order this beautiful gear?
You can find the links below. We have used the popular printing company Spreadshirt to host our designs. Spreadshirt has different printing and shipping logistics for the US and Europe, so we have uploaded two copies of our designs, one on their US site and other on their UK site; it will be cheaper and more sustainable to get your gear printed at the site closest to you (note that prices are identical across Europe, we use the UK site because it is in English, but you will be forwarded to your own European country’s website when you click on the UK link). Spreadshirt also ships to other countries and continents, but the shipping fees might be a bit higher, depending on your distance from the relevant hub, and you might need to pay customs. We apologize for this.
Can I customize the gear?
Sure! Once you click on a design, you can change the cut (e.g. to a female cut, V-neck, pullover, organic cotton, etc.) via the Products option. You also have the freedom to change the color and size.
We look forward to seeing some of you sport these designs at an upcoming seminar or tea-time!
