Within the European COST network “Qspace” (Quantum structure of spacetime) the meeting is devoted to the mathematical aspects of assumed and studied models. Our aim is to gather experts from different corners of the field to share their approaches and present recent results within a very broad scope of topics that very rarely come together.
Speakers: Joakim Arnlind, Fabien Besnard, Pierre Bielavski, Ludwik Dąbrowski, Daniele Guido, Jens Hoppe, Giovanni Landi, Shahn Majid, Alexander Schenkel, Harold Steinacker.
Supported by COST (Qspace), Banach Center and Templeton Foundation.
University of Copenhagen
October 2nd to October 6th, 2017
This masterclass will focus on KK-theory and the Universal Coefficient Theorem, with a special regard towards applications to the structure and classification theory of nuclear C*-algebras. Further topics, such as equivariant extensions of KK-theory for C*-algebras over topological spaces or with group actions, will also be explored.
Last Thursday the last lecture series of Alain Connes at Collège de France has started. It will treat two topics, entitled:
There was an overwhelming interest for the first lecture, which has also been recorded and can be viewed here.
A postdoctoral position in quantum gravity and quantum geometry will be available at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP) of the Radboud University, starting in autumn of 2017. The successful applicant will become part of the research program “Quantum gravity and the search for quantum spacetime”, a collaboration of high-energy theorists and mathematical physicists, sponsored by the Dutch Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM).
Applicants should have a background in quantum gravity or related areas, and an active interest in contributing to the consortium’s research in nonperturbative quantum gravity, which focuses on causal dynamical triangulations, renormalization group methods and noncommutative geometry. The appointment will be for two years. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2016. See http://www.hef.ru.nl/~rloll/Web/jobs/jobs.html for more information and how to apply.
KK-theory, Gauge Theory and Topological Phases School – Workshop
from 27 Feb 2017 through 10 Mar 2017
Lorentz Center Leiden
Alan Carey (Canberra, Australia)
Steve Rosenberg (Boston, MA, USA)
Walter van Suijlekom (Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
This is a school and workshop on new developments in Kasparov theory (also referred to as KK-theory) motivated by applications to gauge theory and topological phases of matter.
The school is intended for PhD-students and postdocs working on KK-theory and/or its applications to physics. This includes young scientists who work on gauge theory or on topological phases with a strong mathematical background, and who want to learn the novel approach to these fields that KK-theory has in stock. Moreover, it is an opportunity for more senior people who are in related fields and want to learn KK-theory.
The workshop is intended for scientists working in the field and also in topological phases of matter, and particularly for the participants of the preceding school. It will attract leading experts from all parts of the world, but will also function as a platform for talented young scientists.
The Faculty of Science FNWI of the Radboud University has made two job openings possible in the Christine Mohrmann Programme.
In particular, this programme is open to women mathematicians and physicists.
Joint Meetings on
Noncommutative Geometry and Higher Structures
Università di Perugia, 25-29 July 2016
The aim of the workshop is to bring together people working on noncommutative geometry, deformation theory and related fields, to promote new collaborations and interaction between senior scientists and students/junior researchers, and give to young mathematicians some perspectives on who is doing what in this field.The conference will take place in the mathematics department of the University of Perugia, located in Via Luigi Vanvitelli 1, Perugia.
The scientific activities of the conference will start at 2:30 PM on Monday 25 July and finish at 12:30 AM on Friday 29. To register, please send an email with your name and affiliation to Nicola Ciccoli (no registration fee is required).

Noncommutative Geometry and Applications to Quantum Physics
July 12th – 22nd, 2017, Quy Nhon, Vietnam
This international CIMPA * Research School will be held at ICISE ** hosted by the Rencontres du Vietnam ***
Noncommutative Geometry (NCG) is a vivid research subject in Mathematics and Physics. The main goal of this school is to train local researchers and students in these topics and to establish strong research collaborations with colleagues, students and researchers. Leading experts in NCG will give an overview of the main well-established results, the essential tools, and some of the present active research activities:
- Connes-Chern Character Theorem
- Noncommutative Integration Theory (Dixmier Traces, Singular Traces…)
- Unbounded KK
- -theory and Kasparov Product
- Dynamical Systems and KMS States
- Quantum Groups
- Fuzzy Spaces
- Noncommutative Standard Model of Particle Physics
- Application to the QHE…
- The opening session is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 13th;
- the school will end on Saturday, July 22nd.
- Lectures hours are 8:30 – 12:00 and 13:30 – 17:00.
- Lectures will be held in the ICISE conference Center.
