Title: Some examples of Brauer-Picard groups of fusion categories

Abstract: A fusion category is a type of tensor category which shares 
many properties with representation categories of finite groups. In 
addition to groups, examples of fusion categories come from quantum 
groups, operator algebras, and conformal field theory.

In this talk we will describe the Brauer-Picard group of a fusion 
category, introduced by Etingof, Nikshych and Ostrik; and explain some 
calculations and examples.
