The Baum-Connes conjecture proposes a description of the K-theory of group C^*-algebras. In this talk we shall first recall some definitions from the theory of operator algebras and review some results on this conjecture. We then explain how to extend the conjecture to a certain class of discrete quantum groups. In particular, we show how to formulate and prove an analogue of the Baum-Connes conjecture for the dual of SU_q(2).
