It has been repeatedly demonstrated over the past 25 years that there are subtle and powerful  connections between noncommutative algebra and algebraic geometry. In the past few  years, this has achieved new power. Geometric methods were crucial to recent progress on the longstanding problem of whether the enveloping algebra of an infinite-dimensional Lie algebra can be noetherian. There are important recent results on transcendental division rings, on noncommutative resolutions of singularities, and on categorical methods relating noncommutative and commutative rings. This workshop will bring together established leaders and younger researchers in noncommutative algebraic geometry to share recent developments and to forge new connections.
