16-21 September 2005


Domaine Sol Cress, Spa, Belgium
The conference will take place at the Sol Cress Conference Centre in Spa, which is about 50 km from Liège. Spa is located in the Ardennes region and is a small city surrounded by some magnificent forests. Group transportation will be organised on arrival and departure days from and back to Brussels airport (via Verviers train station).

Final Programme & List of Accepted Participants

At this meeting recent developments in Noncommutative Algebra and Noncommutative Geometry will be discussed. Particular areas of interest will be: interaction between Representation Theory, Algebraic Geometry, Invariant Theory, Quantum Group Theory etc… with application to Physics or effective computations.

The emphasis will be on new emerging theories and applications, e.g. the geometry of path algebras and quiver varieties; the study of asymptotics of representations; quantization and deformation theory; geometric interpelations of the standard monomial basis for path theory and relations to crystal constructions; graded character theory in the O-category for semisimple Lie algebras; quantum invariants of maps between manifolds and problems concerning crossed braided categories; quiver-module and their cohomology in relation to the representation theory of Borcherds algebras, etc.

The general philosophy is to support the blending at a deeper level of noncommutative algebra with geometric and topological methods.
