Andras Stipsicz, Princeton University: Using surgery theory we develope an obstruction classfor Stein fillability of almost contact manifolds in dimension atleast 5. Using this class we prove fillability and non-fillabilityresults. This work is part of a joint project with Jonathan Bowden andDiarmuid Crowley.
