BIRS workshop on Noncommutative Geometry (03w5060)

Arriving in Banff, Alberta Saturday, April 5 and departing Thursday April 10, 2003

Objectives

We intend to bring together top experts from around the world to present
the latest developments in noncommutative geometry and its applications
in mathematics and physics. In particular, we intend to have updates on
cyclic homology theory, the Baum-Connes conjectures, emerging new
examples of noncommutative spaces and quantum groups, deformation
quantization, noncommutative geometry from string theory and M-theory,
Hopf algebras and their role in renormalization theory (Connes-Kreimer
theoy), cyclic cohomology of Hopf algebras and Hopf algebroids, and
deformation theory of Hopf algebras.
