Show synopsis This is the Proceedings of the ICM 2010 Satellite Conference on "Buildings, Finite Geometries and Groups" organized at the Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore, during August 29 - 31, 2010. This is a collection of articles by some of the currently very active research workers in several areas related to finite simple groups, Chevalley groups and their generalizations: theory of buildings, finite incidence geometries, modular representations, Lie theory, etc. These articles reflect the current major trends in research in the geometric and combinatorial aspects of the study of these groups. The unique perspective the authors bring in their articles on the current developments and the major problems in their area is expected to be very useful to research mathematicians, graduate students and potential new entrants to these areas.
