This is the website for an algebraic topology conference series meeting every two years in San Juan, Puerto Rico supported by the National Science Foundation, Purdue University, the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the University of Miami, and the University of Puerto Rico. The conferences will feature a variety of events focusing on recent developments in algebraic topology and their applications to geometry, physics, and data science.

The next iteration of the series will occur on June 5 - June 14, 2024. This event will have three parts. From June 5th to June 7th it will feature three introductory mini-courses on the topics of configuration spaces, algebraic K-theory, and string topology accessible to graduate students and researchers in related fields outside algebraic topology. On June 8th, there will be a special event open to the general public titled Topology in mathematics and beyond featuring two talks about the role of topology within mathematics and in other fields of science. Both of these events will take place at the University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras campus. The main research conference will then take place from June 10th to June 14th at the AC Hotel Condado in San Juan. It will feature talks by invited speakers as well as contributed talks. More information including the schedule and abstracts may be found here.

Registration for the 2024 conference is now closed.
