The workshop Noncommutative Geometry and Particle Physics was held at the Lorentz Centre in Leiden in October 2013.
The goal of this workshop was to bring together scientists working in noncommutative geometry and in particle physics, to see how experimental findings (e.g. in particle accelerators, but not exclusively) provide inspiration for noncommutative geometry, and vice versa, how noncommutative geometry can provide tools for phenomenological model-building.
The workshop consisted of morning lectures (crash courses) on topics in noncommutative geometry for particle physicists and vice versa. Besides more advanced seminars there was plenty of discussion time. Also there were `study groups’ in which several open research problems were addressed by the participants.
