Abstract
<p>I will outline Bergeron-Wise’s proof that the Virtual Haken Conjecture follows from Wise’s Conjecture on virtual specialness of non-positively curved cube complexes. If time permits, I will sketch some highlights from the proof of Wise’s Conjecture due to Agol and based on the Weak Separation Theorem of Agol-Groves-Manning. </p>
