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.

Arrangements
Participation
Invited participants should have received an invitation to register by email from ICMS. There is a public application form (top right of this page) for anyone else who wishes to attend.
Venue
The workshop will be held at ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh.
Talks and Audio/Visiual Equipment
All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre. The lecture theatre has a built in computer, data projector, and visualiser/document camera. In addition, there are two blackboards. The projector and one board may be used simultaneously. We advise Speakers that, where possible, you bring your talk on a memory stick/USB to put onto our computer in advance of your session - either at the start of the day or during coffee/lunch breaks. ICMS staff can help with this. It is possible for you to use your own laptops but it is then your own responsibility to ensure that resolutions are changed on the laptops if necessary (ICMS will not change the resolution on our equipment). If you use a MAC we expect you to bring your own adaptor.
UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.
Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.
Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies that may occur on your trip.
A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 20.00 to 25.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey. There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 4.50 GBP single or 7.50 GBP return - the Airlink 100. This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station, and the workshop venue (see map in 'Venue' section above).
Lothian buses charge £1.60 for a single, £4.00 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.
If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has several railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second large railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre. Please be aware that there is also an Edinburgh Park railway station but this is at the west side of the city some way from the city centre. For ICMS, use Edinburgh Waverley.
Registration Fee
A registration fee of 100 GBP is payable by all participants (excluding Organisers). Payment can be made on arrival at ICMS - at Registration we will accept cash, credit/debit card payments and sterling cheques (payable to “Heriot-Watt University”). Unfortunately, we do not yet have an on-line payment system at ICMS.
Accommodation
ICMS will organise accommodation for invited participants.
Catering
The workshop grant will cover refreshments throughout the event and lunch on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. There will be an informal wine reception on the Monday evening and the workshop dinner on the Thursday evening.
Wireless Access
Access to wifi via Eduroam is available throughout the building. If you are not registered with Eduroam you will be given instructions and a code for accessing the wireless network. For those without laptops, there will also be a couple of computers available for you to check your emails.
