The goal of this international cross-disciplinary conference is to enable exchange of methods and ideas as well as exploration of fundamental research problems in the wide fields of knot theory and low-dimensional topology, from theoretical to applications in sciences like biology and physics, and to provide high quality interactions across fields and generations of researchers, from graduate students to the most senior researchers. Graduate students and new PhD’s working in these fields are especially encouraged to participate. This conference will also provide a convenient opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Professor Louis H. Kauffman, who reached the age of 70 in February 2015.
The Conference is organized by the National Technical University of Athens with the co-organization of the Hellenic Mathematical Society, under the auspices of the Greek Ministry of Education. The Conference builds on the legacy of the “Knots in Hellas ’98” held at the European Cultural Center of Delphi, Greece.
