In the last two years we assisted to a substantial improvement on the number of CVs discovered, but only few exciting results have been obtained.
Thus, in this paper I cannot give astonishing news with respect to those discussed in the review paper published by Giovannelli & Sabau-Graziati (2015a), but simply I will present a personal view about the route to be followed in
the investigations on CVs. The exception has been the very exciting news about the discovery of a white dwarf
pulsar in AR Sco (Buckley et al., 2017) presented by David Buckley in his talk (Bukley, 2017a, this workshop) and followed by a series of related talks by Beskrovnaya, Meintjes, Isakova, and Ikhsanov (2017, this workshop).
