This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 16282 "Topological Methods in Distributed Computing", which was attended by 22 international researchers, both junior and senior. In the last 10--15 years, there has been an increasing body of work on applications of topology in theoretical distributed computing. This seminar brought together computer scientists working in
theoretical distributed computing and mathematicians working in combinatorial topology, leading to interesting new collaborations. This report gathers abstracts of the talks given by the participants and of the group research sessions that happened during the seminar.
