Our campus Welcome to the homepage for the Fifteenth Annual Spring Institute Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras

This year’s topic is Operator Algebras and Logic. The Fifteenth Annual Spring Institute on Noncommutative Geometry and Operator Algebras is a combination of spring school and international conference. During the school part of the meeting several mini-courses on a variety of topics from noncommutative geometry, operator algebras and related topics will be given by leading experts. The conference will consist of a number of invited research talks and short contributions. We strongly encourage students and postdocs to attend this conference.
