Quantization and reduction mod p

I will discuss the proof of some conjectures of A. Belov-Kanel and M. Kontsevich concerning the structure of the automorphism group of the Weyl algebra. In particular, the conjecture follows from a "quantization correspondence" which is based on reducing D-modules to finite characteristic.
