Time/Room: | 2:30pm - 3:30pm/S-101 |

I will discuss how some questions in conformal geometry can be answered using twistor theory. One such application is to the classification of locally conformally flat Hermitian surfaces. Another application is to determining the conformal automorphism group of anti-self-dual metrics.
