Title: From Supergravity Backgrounds to Pure Spinor Sigma Models

Abstract: I briefly review the Pure Spinor Formalism. I illustrate some
new developments which simplify the formulation of Pure Spinor
Sigma models given a supergravity bakcgrounds. We discuss the general
formulation of Pure Spinor Constraints in generic backgrounds and
applications to non-maximally supersymmetric backgrounds.
