One of the first things that I learned about Non-Commutative Geometry (NCG) was that Alain Connes is the founder of NCG. I googled his name, and I found out that he has traveled to Iran. I download the PDF of the interview which had been done by Khosroshahi and Eaman Eftekhari at IPM. then by reading the interview, I found out that NCG has got roots in Operator Algebra (OA) and some other fields of mathematics, but mainly it is rooted in OA. I remember in some part of the interview Prof. Khosroshahi asked Alain Connes: have you chosen a new name for an old branch of math? but everybody knows it is not true.
I was seraching some french university those has got research groups in NCG, and I faced with this amazing website: group de travail et recherche de géométrie non commutative (GDR 2947)
You can find so many usefull information about NCG and its conferences and also job positions by seeing this two websites:
