Abstract: Let G be an exceptional simple algebraic group defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic p>0. We assume that p is good for G, that is p>5 if G is of type E_8 and p>3 in all other cases. In my talk, based on recent joint work with David Stewart, I will describe all maximal Lie subalgebras of Lie(G).
