I will survey some results on birational automorphisms of rationally
connected varieties of low dimension. I will be mostly interested in
rationally connected threefolds, and in particular in the projective space P3.
In general, finite subgroups of groups of birational automorphisms
appear to be more accessible than its "global" structure. I will
speak about boundedness results for finite subgroups and survey
partial classificational results, in particular, for finite p-subgroups.
