Elduque (U. de Zarazoga, Spain) and Kochetov (Memorial U. of Newfoundland, Canada) introduce theory of gradings on Lie algebras, with a focus on classifying gradings on simple finite-dimensional Lie algebras over algebraically closed fields. They cover gradings on algebras, associative algebras, classical Lie algebras, composition algebras and type G2, Jordan algebras with type F4, other simple Lie algebras in characteristic zero, and Lie algebras of Caran type in prime characteristic.
