I mainly want to give an introduction to Witten's work on the connection between Chern Simons theory and topological invariants of knots and links in three dimensions. His work also revealed that there is a deep relation between (2+1)d CS theory and particular (1+1)d CFTs.

If time allows I will to talk about this, too.
