Let X be a smooth complete curve, G be a reductive group and P ⊂ G a parabolic. Following Drinfeld, one defines a (relative) compactification BunP of the moduli stack of P-bundles on X. The present paper is concerned with the explicit description of the Intersection Cohomology sheaf of BunP. The description is given in terms of the combinatorics of the Langlands dual Lie algebra ǧ.
