DESCRIPTION:\n Noncommutative geometry aims at studying\, with a geometric
approach\, structures for which the algebra of regular functions on a man
ifold is substituted with a noncommutative algebra. Tools from functional
analysis and operator algebras are used to construct\, in a noncommutative
framework\, analogues of such things as homology\, cohomology\, K-theory
and so on\, which are typical of classical geometry. Among the most import
ant models of noncommutative geometry there are those coming from quantum
theories in diverse forms\, starting with quantum mechanics and arriving t
o quantum field theories and quantum gravity. And there are applications t
o a variety of fields including number theory.\n This workshop will be cen
tred on a series of lectures by Alain Connes as final part of his usual co
urse at the Collège de France\, Parigi. There will also be a series of ta
lks covering several aspects of noncommutative geometry\, quantum groups\,
operator algebras and their applications in mathematics and physics.\n Th
e workshop is the final one for the Italian-French project GREFI-GENCO on
Noncommutative Geometry.Scientific committee:\n Fabio Cipriani (Politecnic
