Show List of Speakers

Non-commutative geometry could be regarded as a special case of quantization, and the work of Connes and his collaborators shows that non-commutative geometry represents the deepest example of quantization. Notions from the more general quantization, including the theory of quantum groups, are having an increasingly important effect on the geometric theory. These two topics have been scheduled in a joint workshop because the confluence of their research is likely to influence future advances in both fields. Probable Participants include: A. Ashtekar, T. Banica, A. Connes, M. Crainic, J. Cuntz, M. Douglas, J. Froehlich, J. Gracia-Bondia, N. Higson, A. Jaffe, G. Kasparov, M. Kontsevich, D. Kreimer, V. Lafforgue, N. Landsman, J. Lott, T. Masuda, H. Moscovici, T. Natsume, R. Neszt, V. Nistor, J. Packer, B. Ramazan, J. Renault, M. Rieffel, J. Roe, J. Rosenberg, M. Schlichenmaier, K. Schmuedgen, A. Schwarz, G. Skandalis, B. Tsygan, J. Tu, H. Upmeier, A. Van Daele, A. Weinstein, M. Wodziki, S. Woronowicz, G. Yu

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.

MSRI has preferred rates at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. Guests can call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Institute discount. To book online visit this page (the MSRI rate will automatically be applied).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Graduate Berkeley, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-845-8981. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate. Enter in the Promo Code MSRI123 (this code is not case sensitive).

MSRI has preferred rates at the Berkeley Lab Guest House, depending on room availability. Reservations may be made by calling 510-495-8000 or directly on their website. Select "Affiliated with the Space Sciences Lab, Lawrence Hall of Science or MSRI." When prompted for your UC Contact/Host, please list Chris Marshall (coord@msri.org).

MSRI has a preferred rates at Easton Hall and Gibbs Hall, depending on room availability. Guests can call the Reservations line at 510-204-0732 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. rate.
