The formal degree conjecture relates the formal degree of an irreducible square-integrable representation of a reductive group over a local field to the special value of the adjoint gamma-factor of its L-parameter. We prove the formal degree conjecture for odd special orthogonal and metaplectic groups in the generic case, which combined with Arthur's work on the local Langlands correspondence implies the conjecture in full generality. This is joint work with Erez Lapid and Zhengyu Mao.
