Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry
Shanghai Workshop 2011

September 12-16, 2011


This is the second Shanghai workshop on Noncommutative Algebraic geometry. This workshop provides a useful follow up to several highly successful workshops and conferences on similar topics (including Shanghai workshop 2006, Shanghai, China; BIRS workshop 2008, Banff, Canada; Manchester workshop 2009, Manchester, UK; RIMS workshop 2009, Kyoto, Japan). We emphasize on recent developments and new directions in this very active research area. The workshop brings together the leading experts from different parts of noncommutative algebra, algebraic geometry and noncommutative algebraic geometry and encourages interaction between all participants.
