Must add OstvaerRoendigs article on some spectral sequence for slices of integral Witt theory, possibly giving a new proof of the Milnor conjecture.

[arXiv:1212.5780] On the relation of special linear algebraic cobordism to Witt groups from arXiv Front: math.KT by Alexey Ananyevskiy We reconstruct derived Witt groups via special linear algebraic cobordism. There is a morphism g: MSL^{,} > W^* of ring cohomology theories which sends the canonical Thom class th^{MSL} to the Thom class th^{W}. We show that for every smooth variety X this morphism induces an isomorphism between MSL^{,}(X)/(h 1) with the "extended" coefficient ring MSL^{4,2}(pt) > W^{2}(pt) and derived Witt groups W^(X), where h is the stable Hopf map. This result is an analogue of the result by Panin and Walter reconstructing hermitian Ktheory using symplectic algebraic cobordism.
Stabilization of the Witt Group, by Max Karoubi: Using an idea due to R. Thomason, we define a "homology theory" on the category of rings which satisfies excision, exactness, homotopy (in the algebraic sense) and periodicity of order 4. For regular noetherian rings, we find P. Balmers's higher Witt groups. For more general rings, this homology is isomorphic to the KTtheory of J. Hornbostel, inspired by the work of B. Williams. For real or complex C*algebras, we recover  up to 2 torsion  topological Ktheory. K0757
