Abstracts (to come)

Recently there have been big steps forward in the theory of magnitude - in the analysis of the magnitude function and its geometric content on the one hand, and, on the other, the birth of magnitude homology and cohomology and results about its relationship with persistent homology. That’s in addition to existing connections with algebra, graph theory, and the measurement of biodiversity. See here for links to further information.

It's time to bring all the involved colleagues together into the same room.
