This will be fairly tutorial and aim to accessibly describe progress on a theory of network architecture relevant to neuroscience, biology, medicine and technology (particularly SDN/NFV and cyberphysical systems), initially focusing on the common motivations from these subjects. Key ideas are motivated by familiar examples from neuroscience, including live demos using audience brains, and further illustrated with examples from technology and biology. The status of the necessary math will be sketched in as much detail as time permits.

Helmut Pottmann (Technische Universität Wien)
Many of today’s most striking buildings are nontraditional freeform shapes. While using current modeling tools to digitally design freeform geometry is well understood, fabrication on the architectural scale is a big challenge, providing a rich source of research topics in geometry and geometric computing. Pottmann will provide an overview of recent progress in the emerging field of architectural geometry, discuss its relation to contemporary research in geometry and computer graphics, and illustrate the shift of mathematical research into architectural practice.
