Existence of Lefschetz fibrations on Stein/Weinstein domains

Please note special day and location.   I will describe joint work with E. Giroux in which we show that every Weinstein domain admits a Lefschetz fibration over the disk (that is, a singular fibration with Weinstein fibers and Morse singularities).
