We will discuss conjectures and results regarding the Hilbert
Property, a generalization of Hilbert's irreducibility theorem to arbitrary
algebraic varieties. In particular, we will explain how to use conic fibrations
to prove the Hilbert Property for the integral points on certain surfaces,
such as affine cubic surfaces.
