Time/Room: | 2:00pm - 3:00pm/S-101 |

We will survey the role played by some classes of higher order integral conformal invariants in conformal geometry which include the integral of Q-curvature and those related to the Gauss-Bonnet integrand. We will also discuss a class of integral invariants which was discovered from the consideration of the volume form of conformal compact Einstein manifolds in CFT/Ads setting.
