Noncommutative Shapes: A conference in honor of Michel Van den Bergh's 60th birthday

University of Antwerp

September 12–16, 2022


The aim of this conference is to join together international experts and young researchers alike, with a view on exploring noncommutative geometry in its many varied incarnations. Particular emphasis is placed on the vast range of topics cultivated and enriched by Michel Van den Bergh, who we join in celebrating Kanreki in 2020. Because of the pandemic we have postponed this event to 2022.

The main conference will be held September 12–16 2022 (in a hybrid form).
