Finally restrictions are being removed in Stockholm and we look forward to welcoming you.


The Brummer & Partners MathDataLab at the Department of Mathematics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm is organizing an international conference on the Mathematics for Complex Data . The aim of the conference is to bring together leading experts in the field and highlight recent advances in mathematics related to data-analysis and artificial intelligence. The conference is intended to cover a broad range of topics with emphasis on data analysis, including algebra and topology, probability and statistics, applied harmonic analysis, and optimization.


The following is a snippet of topics covered in the conference.

Algebraic statistics

Applied harmonic analysis

Computational methods for complex data

Control and optimisation in machine learning

High-dimensional statistics

Mathematics of deep learning

Stochastic analysis in learning

Topological data analysis

In connection to the conference there will also be a one-day meeting in the AlToGeLiS network. This meeting take place on Friday, June 17. Details keep being posted here: https://altogelis.com/

Extensive information about getting to Stockholm and KTH can be found here. The following is a brief summary:

By train

The university campus is situated near the subway (and bus) station Östra Station. When arriving by train to Stockholm Central Station, the subway can be accessed at a lower level (compared to where the train arrives) at the station. Follow the signs and take the red subway line towards "Mörby Centrum", exit at "Tekniska högskolan" (third stop from Stockholm C).

By plane

Via Arlanda Airport (ARN)

From Arlanda Airport take either the express train "Arlanda Express" or commuter rails to Stockholm Central Station. The express train can be accessed from terminals 2 and 5, whereas the commuter rail can be accessed only from Terminal 5 (from "Sky City"). Tickets are available from ticket booths or from the machines, both within the arrival hall (it is not possible to purchase a ticket on either train).

Via Bromma Airport (BMA)

There are both shuttle and local buses going from Bromma Airport to Stockholm Central Station. For the airport shuttle, tickets are sold at the airport Pressbyrån newsagents, at the self-service payment machine at the bus stop, and on board the coach. For local buses, tickets must be purchased in advance; please see SL's webpage for more information, including routes and schedules.
