Gromov-Witten invariants are counts of holomorphic curves on a smooth projective variety X. When assembled into a generating series, these invariants often produce special functions. A folklore conjecture predicts that when X admits an elliptic fibration, the Gromov-Witten generating functions are quasi-modular forms. I will discuss recent progress on this conjecture and a program to prove it in general.
