**Title:** McKay correspondence for some almost complex spaces.

**Speaker:** Mainak Poddar, ISI Kolkata

**Abstract:**
We look at McKay correspondence as a correspondence in a certain
cohomology theory under crepant resolution of orbifold singularities.
In algebraic geometry this may be proved in complete generality by using motivic
integration. However one can sensibly pose the question whether a similar correspondence holds for
almost complex orbifolds. We will describe some progress in answering this question
for a particular class of interesting almost complex spaces
