Title: Global group laws and the equivariant Quillen theorem

Abstract: Quillen's theorem that the complex bordism ring carries the universal formal group law is a fundamental result in stable homotopy theory. In this talk I will discuss equivariant versions of this theorem, both over a fixed abelian compact Lie group and in a global equivariant setting.
