In 1993, Morrison conjectured that the automorphism group of a Calabi-Yau 3-fold acts on its nef cone with a rational polyhedral fundamental domain. In this talk, I will discuss a version of this conjecture for log Calabi-Yau surfaces that we have proved. In particular, for a generic log Calabi-Yau surface with singular boundary, the monodromy group acts on the nef effective cone with a rational polyhedral fundamental domain. In addition, the automorphism group of the unique surface with a split mixed Hodge structure in each deformation type acts on the nef effective cone with a rational polyhedral fundamental domain.
