This is an announcement for the paper "On volume distribution in
2-convex bodies" by Boaz Klartag and Emanuel Milman.
Abstract: We consider convex sets whose modulus of convexity is
uniformly quadratic. First, we observe several interesting relations
between different positions of such ``2-convex'' bodies; in particular,
the isotropic position is a finite volume-ratio position for these
bodies. Second, we prove that high dimensional 2-convex bodies
posses one-dimensional marginals that are approximately Gaussian.
Third, we improve for 1<p<=2 some bounds on the isotropic constant
of quotients of subspaces of L_p and S_p^m, the Schatten Class
