Theme of Workshop:

The workshop will aim to expose some of the most exciting new developments relating noncommutative geometry to other topics in pure and applied mathematics. Topics are expected to include dynamical systems, the theory of foliations, fractal and infinite-dimensional geometry, number theory, algebraic geometry, among others. The aim is to highlight the potentially interdisciplinary implications of noncommutative geometry and also to identify some of the most exciting trends for the future. Coming at the end of the programme, the workshop invites suggestions from any of the long term participants.

Invited Speakers to Include:

Y Berest, P Cartier, A Connes, I Gordon, J Hunton, M Karoubi, L Le Bruyn, JT Stafford, SL Woronowicz and B Zilber.

Location and Cost:

The workshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The conference package, costing £480, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 17 December 2006 to breakfast on Saturday 23 December 2006, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place.
