Planar contact manifolds, those that correspond to an open book decomposition with genus zero pages, have been intensively studied to understand several aspects of 3-dimensional contact topology. In this talk, we present a higher-dimensional notion of planarity, iterated planarity, and provide several generalizations of results for planar contact 3- manifolds, to higher dimensions. This is partly joint work with A. Moreno.
