Australia-China conference in noncommutative geometry and related areas 

University of Adelaide (18-22 December 2017)

Noncommutative geometry (NCG) is a theory using algebra of operators to study a class of nonstandard spaces, initially arising from quantum mechanics. Over the past few decades, it developed into an active research area with connections to many branches of mathematics and physics. This conference will bring together leading experts and early career researchers working in several streams of NCG, namely, C*-algebra, dynamics, K-theory, representation theory and mathematical physics, to promote the dissemination of novel research findings. This conference is a great opportunity for research communications and collaborations between Australian and Chinese mathematicians, and between students and experts in this field.
