GRA2 - Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives

Since its formulation in 1971, the McKay conjecture has influenced the direction of the representation theory of finite groups. In 2008 the conjecture was reduced to checking that simple groups satisfy the so called inductive McKay condition. This condition is now influencing not only the study of characters of simple groups, but character theory in general. We give an overview of this and related problems.
