Recent developments in noncommutative algebra and related areas

March 17-19, 2018


The purpose of this three-day conference is to bring together researchers who work in noncommutative algebra and related areas, such as algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, representation theory, and their interactions. We will focus on recent developments and new directions in noncommutative algebraic geometry, Hopf algebras and quantum groups, noncommutative invariant theory, (higher) category theory, and algebraic aspects of mathematical physics.
