Minnan Normal University, Shantou University and Capital Normal University are organizing the 1st Pan Pacific International Conference on Topology and Applications (PPICTA). The aim of this conference is to present the latest research on topology and related fields. The conference plans to have 9 sessions: Algebraic Topology, Categorical and Fuzzy Topology, Continuum Theory, Geometric and Infinite-dimensional Topology, Knot Theory, Set-Theory, Set-Theoretic Topology, Topological Algebra, Topology and Inter-disciplinary Applications.

The session of “Continuum Theory” is dedicated to Professor Alejandro Illanes for his 60th birthday. The session of “Topology and Inter-disciplinary Applications” will have a special half-day programme on “Topological games” to commemorate Professor Rastislav Telgarsky, who passed away from a sudden and unexpected illness in December 2014.

The scientific programme of the conference will consist of plenary lectures and parallel sessions of invited talks and contributed talks. We are honoured to announce that the ceremony of this year round's Mary Ellen Rudin Young Research Award will be held at the conference.

The conference will be held at Min Nan Normal University, Zhangzhou City. As a famous cultural city with a history of 1,300 years, Zhangzhou is the birthplace of “Min Nan Culture”. Today, it is a prefecture-level city in Fujian Province, China. The population in the urban area is about 350,000.
