The Bologna ACAT Advanced School focuses on the area of Computational Topology applied to Computer Image and Vision. It is mainly aimed at PhD students and young researchers in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Computer Science interested in Computational Topology and Computer Vision and the interaction between these areas.

In the Bologna ACAT Advanced School, experts in the fields of - Computational Homology - Persistent Topology - Discrete Morse Theory - Computer Vision will give introductory talks on the respective topics in which they are specialists.

The Bologna ACAT Advanced School will be followed by the 4th International Workshop on Computational Topology in Image Context (CTIC2012), held in Bertinoro (Italy), February 6-8 May 28-30, 2012. In the CTIC2012 Workshop, there will be contributed talks on the recent advancements in the fields involving a geometric-topological approach to imaging science.

PhD Students and young researchers are strongly encouraged to partecipate in both the events.
