WAGP2010 is the 15th event of a series of Schools and Workshops that have been organized by the Mathematical Physics and Geometry group of the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste in conjunction with leading institutions around the world. Past events have taken place in Trieste, Salamanca and Medina del Campo (Spain), Luminy (France), Como (Italy), Philadelphia (USA), Vienna (Austria), Tianjin (China), Seoul (Korea), Hangzhou (China), Maresias (Brazil). You may have a look at the past events at the following link:


Deformation quantization, i.e., the study of the deformation of classical structures, such as Poisson manifolds, to noncommutative spaces, has been, together with its many applications, one of the central characters in the deep and fruitful interplay between geometry and physics that has taken place in the last 20 years. With its connections with, and applications to, noncommutative geometry, integrable systems, quantum field theory and strings, it represents a crossing point of many fundamental areas of research in present-day mathematics and theoretical physics. In the tradition of this series of events, this year's workshop aims at discussing the state of the art in this field, with a special emphasis on the mutual interactions between the physics and the mathematics communities.
