On the p-adic section conjecture
I plan to report on joint work with Jakob Stix on the p-adic section conjecture. If not already done by speakers before me, I will make a short introduction to the section conjecture as it evolved from Grothendieck's program in the Eighties and its [birationa] (p-adic) variants. I will present a new result which reduces the p-adic section conjecture to a local problem. I will comment on possible strategies / difficulties about how to proceed
