The conference is in part a celebration of the past, present and future
contributions to mathematics of Ken Goodearl. While the central
connecting theme is noncommutative algebra, there will be coverage of
the broad connections of this subject with analysis, combinatorics,
geometry, mathematical physics, and topology.

Recent exciting
developments and emerging future directions will be emphasized, with
particular focus on representations of algebras, noncommutative
algebraic geometry, homological and categorical techniques for Hopf
algebras, and C*-algebras.


Features of note:

Focus on emerging topics, and on the links between them;

opportunities for presentations from graduate students, young
researchers, and
mathematicians from under-represented groups.
