|Topic:||Stein fillings of cotangent bundles of surfaces|
|Speaker:||Jeremy van Horn Morris|

|Time/Room:||9:45am - 10:45am/S-101|
I'll outline recent results with Steven Sivek classifying the Stein fillings, up to topological homotopy equivalence, of the canonical contact structure on the unit cotangent bundle of a surface. The proof begins with Li, Mak and Yasui's technology for Calabi-Yau caps.
