$K$-theory has been very successful in attacking surgery theoretic problems. Higson and Roe proposed, in a series of papers, a commutative diagram that summarized many of these developments. The goal of the mini-workshop is to understand these papers and related issues better.

There will be two expository lectures in the morning and one research talk in the afternoon. Here is a link to the PROGRAM and TITLE & ABSTRACT of the talks.


The lectures will be held at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Copenhagen. You can find information for short term visitors including directions to the mathematics department HERE


Partial support is available for a limited number of young researchers. If you wish to apply for support, please register no later than January 20.

Special funding is available for people from Scandinavian universities. Please see

Participants who are affiliated with any node associated with the EU-NCG network in noncommutative geometry should get support from their own node. Ask your node coordinater. You can see the list of associated nodes HERE. 


Registration is closed.
