The workshop involved some top people including Mathilde Marcolli (longtime co-author with Alain Connes), Jerzy Lewandowski, Thomas Thiemann, Hanno Sahlmann, Jesper Grimstrup, Raimar Wulkenhaar, their co-workers, and several others.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It took place the week of 7-13 February at Oberwolfach. Was organized by Marcolli together with Christian Fleischhack and Ryzard Nest.

Jesper Grimstrup has visited the Beyond forum at PF--I remember exchanging messages with him. He and co-author Johannes Aastrup were among the first researchers to try combining LQG with Noncommutative Geometry.

Here's the program of the February workshop, with expanded abstracts of the various papers that were delivered:
