There will be a one-day conference held at Imperial College London on February 8, 2016 on noncommutative geometry. It will be accessible to a broad audience, and graduate students and postdocs are especially encouraged to attend.  The goal will be to answer the question: "Why be noncommutative?" by giving a flavor for the subject of noncommutative geometry, algebra, and representation theory, and their connections with other subjects.  There are limited funds available for graduate students; contact Schedler at t.schedler at imperial.ac.uk. The conference will be followed by a dinner to which all are invited (but you must register by Friday, Feb 5), and which will be (partly) subsidized for graduate students. See the schedule for more details.

The speakers are (see also the detailed programme):
  • Iain Gordon, University of Edinburgh
  • Travis Schedler, Imperial College London
  • Toby Stafford, University of Manchester
The conference is supported by an LMS Conference grant celebrating new appointments and by Imperial College London. 

Please register if you are planning to attend (or considering attending).
