Title Complex contact structures and holomorphic Jacobi manifolds
Abstract In this talk, I will first give an introduction to contact geometry. Various examples of real and complex contact structures will be provided. I will briefly discuss interactions between contact geometry and other areas of mathematics (such as topology, Riemannian geometry) and physics. Then, I’ll discuss holomorphic Jacobi manifolds. It time permits, I’ll explain the integration problem for holomorphic Jacobi manifolds.  This is a joint work with Luca Vitagliano.
