Over the years, noncommutative geometry has developed into a new branch of pure mathematics, and has also influenced and found applications in many other areas of mathematics. It has been further applied in a variety of physical contexts, most notably to gauge theories, the Standard Model, the fractional quantum Hall effect, string theory and M-theory, and various scenarios for quantum gravity. Quantum field theories on noncommutative spaces have also taught us lessons about foundational issues in field theory and gravity. The aim of this special issue of SIGMA is to provide a contemporary overview of some of the main developments and applications of noncommutative geometry, ranging from formal considerations to phenomenological applications.

The issue contains 31 papers with the total of 783 pages.

We would like to thank all the authors who have published papers in the issue, and to give our special thanks to all the referees for providing constructive reviews.
