Title: Spin-TQFTs and cobordisms


Topological Quantum Field Theories (TQFTs) play important role both in 
physics and mathematics, in particular low-dimensional topology. In my 
talk I will review this notion and consider a family of TQFTs in various 
dimensions for which the input data is a finite group G and an element 
of a spin cobordism group of its classifying space BG. I will also 
describe some explicit examples of such TQFTs.
