After a short general introduction to C*-algebras, I'll mainly focus on C*-algebras attached to groups, semigroups and dynamical systems. While group C*-algebras form a classic topic which has been intensively studied, the field of semigroup C*-algebras is rather unexplored and just beginning to emerge. A closely related topic is the interplay between C*-algebras and dynamical systems. I'll give an overview of recent developments.
