Title: On some problems in the geometry of surfaces in normed spaces.
Abstract: We will discuss a few problems in the geometry of surfaces in normed
spaces. The questions may look elementary and even naive but in reality they
prove to be rather hard and intriguing. We will be particularly interested in ellipticity
of the most natural surface area functionals and intrinsic geometry of surfaces in
