Mathematics of Complex Data

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Stockholm, Sweden, June 14-17, 2021


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


The program consists of plenary lectures (60 minutes) and about 12 invited sessions (3x30 min presentations). Information about invited sessions will be updated as they are confirmed. The conference will begin at lunch time on June 14 and finish in the afternoon on June 17.

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.
