Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry
Shanghai Workshop 2006

September 18-22, 2006

Some Photos (added April 29, 2007)


In recent years there has been an increasing interplay between noncommutative algebra and algebraic geometry, with applications in both directions. The resulting subject is often called noncommutative algebraic geometry. The main theme of this workshop is to study this interplay and to bring together people working on various geometrically influenced parts of noncommutative algebra and to encourage their interaction and collaboration.
