A conjecture of Juan-Pineda and Leary states that any group admitting a cocompact model for the classifying space for the family of virtually cyclic subgroups has to b be virtually cyclic already. This conjecture has been proved for large classes of groups.

In this talk I will give an overview of some of these results and constructions, will discuss a weakened condition for these spaces, and will give examples of groups satisfying this condition. This is joint work with N. Petrosyan.
