Title: Survey of symplectic cobordism in contact topology

We will survey notions of symplectic fillings, symplectic caps and symplectic cobordism for contact manifolds. We will survey various rigidity and flexibility results in dimension 3. We will also try to formulate several open questions in dimension 3 as well as higher dimension.
