# Related Activities

### AATRN supports three affiliated seminars: the Networks Seminar, the Topological Complexity Seminar, and the Vietoris-Rips seminar. We have also online conferences and hosted talks from ATMCS. Click on the relevant subpages for more information.

## Affiliated Seminars

### Networks Seminar

The Networks seminar covers applications and theory of how network structure is revealed through topology and algebra. The webpage of the networks seminar can be found here.

Co-organizers: Daniela Egas Santander, Henri Riihimäki, and Jason Smith

### Topological Complexity Seminar

The webpage of the topological complexity seminar, which focuses on topological complexity and related topics, can be found here.

Co-organizers: Dan Cohen, Jesus Gonzalez, John Oprea

Many thanks to romullus for use of the image, taken from this fantastic model.

### Vietoris-Rips Seminar

The webpage of the Vietoris-Rips seminar, which considers connections between applied topology, quantitative topology, geometric group theory, and topological combinatorics, can be found here.

This seminar ran 2021-2023, but is currently paused.

## Affiliated Workshops and Conferences

### Workshop on Bridging Applied and Quantitative Topology

This workshop on Bridging Applied and Computational Topology, which is associated with the Vietoris-Rips seminar, is scheduled for the week of May 9-13, 2022, at 8am-11am Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4). This workshop is organized by Henry Adams, Johnathan Bush, Sunhyuk Lim, and Facundo Mémoli.

### Talks co-hosted by AATRN and ATMCS

These talks were contributed and accepted for ATMCS 9 in 2020, but this was not ATMCS itself (which was cancelled or postponed). The talk schedule spanned Summer 2020 and January 2021. Recordings can be found here.

We also host recorded videos from the following conferences on our YouTube channel:

## Learning Content

### Recordings of TDA courses

You can find the following TDA courses on our YouTube Channel:

## Unaffiliated Activities

You may be interested in the following other resources that are not organized by AATRN:

Other online research seminars on applied topology include GEOTOP-A: Applications of Geometry and Topology and the Asia Pacific Seminar on Applied Topology and Geometry (APATG).

An important source of applied topology news is appliedtopology.org. Mailing lists with announcements in applied topology include WinCompTop and ALGTOP-L and compgeom-announce. You may also be interested in joining the Slack channel "Geometry & Topology in ML" via their invite link.

Check out the database of articles on real-world applications of TDA, run by Barbara Giunti and Jānis Lazovskis!
