I will give an overview and introduction to conformal symmetry. Structures exhibiting conformal symmetry are invariant with respect to changes of coordinates which preserve angles but not necessarily lengths. In two dimensions the algebra of local conformal transformations is infinite-dimensional and thus leads to rich mathematical structures with fascinating implications for physics, such as, exactly solvable quantum field theories.
