Seventh Annual Spring Institute on NCGOA May 4-13, 2009
The Department of Mathematics will host the Seventh Annual Spring Institute on Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras May 4-13, 2009. The theme of this year’s event is “Geometry over F1, Noncommutative Geometry and Zeta.”
The Spring Institute is a combination of spring school and international research conference. During the school portion of the meeting, mini-courses will be given by Lisa Carbone, Pierre Cartier, Alain Connes, Caterina Consani, David Goss, Jack Morava, and Christophe Soule. The conference will comprise several invited research talks. More details are available on the conference web site at http://www.math.vanderbilt.edu/~ncgoa09.
The organizing committee comprises Dietmar Bisch (Vanderbilt University), Alain Connes (Collège de France, IHES & Vanderbilt University; Director of the Seventh Annual Spring Institute), Bruce Hughes (Vanderbilt University), Gennadi Kasparov (Vanderbilt University), and Guoliang Yu (Vanderbilt University).
The Spring Institute on Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras is sponsored by the National Science Foundation through a Research Training Group grant, the Department of Mathematics and the College of Arts & Science at Vanderbilt University.
