Yakov Eliashberg (Stanford) - We prove that all closed almost contact manifolds admit contact structures, and moreover, in the space of contact structures there exists an open-closed subspace of the so-called “overtwisted” contact structures whose classification up to isotopy coincides wth the homotopy classification as almost contact structures. This is a joint work with Strom Borman and Emmy Murphy
