June 29 — July 5, 2022
Tomsk, Russia
satellite conference of ICM 2022
Knot theory and Applications
The purpose of the conference in Tomsk is to emphasize the relevance of the study of knots and to establish some general connections between the low-dimensional topology, statistical physics, and biology, which together constitute a new interdisciplinary branch of natural science that studies the methods of knot theory.

The main topics of the conference are tentatively split into the following subjects:

  • Modern problems of classical and virtual knots (Section A)
  • Braid groups, fundamental groups, quandles, link homology and other algebraic structures in knot theory (Section B)
  • Knots, manifolds, and orbifolds (Section C)
  • Methods of knot theory in natural sciences (Section D)

The program of the conference will include 50-minutes plenary talks, 25-minutes sectional talks, and popular lectures. The sectional talks will be presented by young mathematicians mostly.

The organizing committee plans to support travel to Tomsk and accommodation at the TSU "Parus" hotel for young conference participants — primarily for postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students from other cities of Russia, and developing countries.
