We are excited to announce the 7th edition of Algebraic Topology: Computation, Methods, and Science (ATMCS) scheduled from 25-29 July, 2016 in Turin, Italy! This conference is a joint effort of the Polytechnic University of Turin (Politecnico di Torino) and the ISI Foundation, to be hosted at the Politecnico. ATMCS is a biennial conference series on algebraic topology with an important focus on its role in computer science and applications. The 1st edition was held in 2001 at Stanford University in California, USA with subsequent editions held at international, transatlantic institutions. Applied and computational topology refers to the adaptation of classical topological theory and techniques to other fields of science and engineering. A key goal in the conference series is the further development of topological techniques for use in applications and the creation of new areas of applications in the subject. This conference series maintains a strong tradition of bringing together leading established researchers and young scientists in this emerging discipline, prov iding an opportunity for the exchange of experience and the furthering development of new research ideas. An archive of previous editions with details of the meetings may be found at The steering committee of the ATMCS series consists of Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson (Stockholm, Sweden), Matthew Kahle (Ohio State University, USA), and Andrew Blumberg (University of Texas at Austin, USA), with Frédéric Chazal (INRIA, France), Robert Ghrist (University of Pennsylvania, USA), and Konstantin Mischaikow (Rutgers University, USA) as members of the ATMCS advisory board. A couple of exciting updates and changes for this edition of the conference that are anticipated are: Contributed Talks & Poster Sessions -- We are broadening the traditional Poster Session to include Contributed Talks favoring the voices of junior researchers, particularly PhD students! We will be welcoming submissions soon, look out for a Call for Contributions! Tools & Applications Session -- A special session will be dedicated to tools and applications inspired by and developed from results of the domain of applied and computational topology. The scope of applications will include concrete results and software demos in settings ranging from the natural sciences through to industry. The city of Turin, and the region of Piedmont, Italy offer a rich cultural, historical, and social environment for exploration, which will be highlighted in an Excursion and Social Dinner. Looking forward to seeing you in Turin in 2016! - The ATMCS Team Main Organizers for ATMCS7, 2016: Vin de Silva, Pomona College, USA Anthea Monod, Duke University, USA Local Organizers: Giovanni Petri, ISI Foundation, Italy Francesco Vaccarino, ISI Foundation & Politecnico di Torino, Italy
