Abstract: 

In this talk, we will discuss the recent progress towards the
classification of holomorphic vertex operator algebras of central charge
24. Some important tools will be discussed. We will stress on the
similarities between the theory of vertex operator algebras and the theory
of integral lattices. In particular, Leech lattice, the unique even
unimodular lattice of rank 24 with minimal norm 4, plays an important
role in the classification.
