Last week I attended the Max Planck Institute conference on Hochschild and cyclic cohomology. The meeting was on Hopf cyclic cohomology and higher homotopy structures on Hochschild and cyclic complexes (the so called `stringy topology’). Somehow both topics are very hot these days and I shall report on some of the talks there later. This is the second in a series of three conferences this summer, all co-organized by Matilde, at MPI devoted to noncommutative geometry and its applications.
Another summer conference is a meeting in Warsaw in honor of Paul Baum’s 70 th birthday. Happy birthday Paul!
