Holomorphic integrable systems are fruitfully studied at the interface of differential geometry, algebraic geometry, and mathematical physics. A particularly notable example is the Hitchin system, whose total space is the moduli space of semistable Higgs bundles (of fixed rank and degree) on a compact Riemann surface. This moduli space is known to be hyperkähler, and the Hitchin system thereby gives an instance of interesting and well-studied connections between hyperkähler geometry and integrable systems. 
At the same time, there is an emerging body of literature on noncommutative integrable (NCI) systems. Recent work includes Fernandes, Laurent-Gengoux, and Vanhaecke’s notion of an abstract noncommutative integrable (ANCI) system, which is essentially a foliation-theoretic description of an NCI system. 
I will describe an attempt to create connections between hyperkähler geometry and NCI systems, building on existing relationships between the former and ordinary integrable systems. The main result will be a canonical ANCI system on a class of manifolds Bielawski has shown to be hyperkähler
This represents joint work with Steven Rayan.
