The McKay conjecture was refined in 2004 by G. Navarro 
taking into account the action of Galois automorphisms on characters. 
This refinement is known as the Galois McKay conjecture, and it is one 
of the last counting conjectures without a reduction theorem. In this 
talk I will present a possible reduction theorem for the Galois McKay 
conjecture to a question on finite simple groups. This is joint work 
with G. Navarro and B. Späth.
