ZOOM instructions

Speakers and colleagues with whom we have been in contact will receive individual zoom invitations. If you want to have full participating privileges (camera, microphone), please let us know. We can also upgrade your participation mode during the event, if you let us know via chat.

Join it as a webinar at TBA

The start is at 10am CET (Central European Time)

Book of Abstracts (to appear)


The aim of the conference is to exchange the recent progress and ideas in the field of noncommutative analysis and related broader analysis. Our group took an initiative to organise this workshop for the continuity of research in the field despite the coronavirus times, therefore, the conference will take place on ZOOM.

The conference will be of interest to all noncommutative analysts, as well as to mathematicians working in related areas of analysis (commutative, spectral, harmonic, nonharmonic) and partial differential equations.

Our modelling of COVID-19 for Belgium:

The effectiveness analysis is carried our for the lockdown in Belgium and of its duration, as well as of several phases of its relaxation. The comparative projection is made of different scenarios depending on the strength of confinement measures and their implementation.
