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

We will publish conference proceedings of this
workshop in the Journal ``Communications in Algebra''.
All participants of this conference (and previous Seattle
conferences) are encouraged to submit their
research papers to the proceedings between January 1 to Dec. 1, 2018.
Every paper will be peer-reviewed and will be accepted if the paper
meets the standard of the Journal. More information about
submission will be provided
in January 2018. The guest editors for this issue are
Ellen Kirkman, Chelsea Walton and James Zhang.
On March 17, 2018 (more information coming).
