Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory January 14, 2013 to May 24, 2013
Organizers Mike Artin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Viktor Ginzburg (University of Chicago), Catharina Stroppel (Universität Bonn , Germany), Toby Stafford* (University of Manchester, United Kingdom), Michel Van den Bergh (Universiteit Hasselt, Belgium), Efim Zelmanov (University of California, San Diego)
Description

Over the last few decades noncommutative algebraic geometry (in its many forms) has become increasingly important, both within noncommutative algebra/representation theory, as well as having significant applications to algebraic geometry and other neighbouring areas. The goal of this program is to explore and expand upon these subjects and their interactions. Topics of particular interest include noncommutative projective algebraic geometry, noncommutative resolutions of (commutative or noncommutative) singularities,Calabi-Yau algebras, deformation theory and Poisson structures, as well as the interplay of these subjects with the algebras appearing in representation theory--like enveloping algebras, symplectic reflection algebras and the many guises of Hecke algebras.

Special Opportunity:
RTG Mini-Course and Workshop on "Tensors and their Geometry in High Dimensions"
From September 26-29, 2012, the Berkeley RTG on Representation Theory, Geometry, and Combinatorics will host a workshop on "Tensors and their Geometry in High Dimensions," featuring Andrew Snowden, Jan Draisma, and Giorgio Ottaviani giving mini-courses. There will also be opportunities for some of the other participants to give related talks. All the details are available here:
http://math.berkeley.edu/~oeding/RTG/index.html. There are no registration fees, however participants are kindly asked to register online. There may be some funding for young researchers.
