Local NCG Seminar

This is an informal seminar on noncommutative geometry and related topics organized by the group of master students, PhD students, postdocs and staff working on topics related to noncommutative geometry in Nijmegen and its surroundings. At the same time, it forms a platform where we share with each other our ideas, projects, problems, papers, etc.
