In a previous paper [Homogeneous spaces of nonreductive type that do not model any compact manifold, Publ. Res. Inst. Math. Sci. 53 (2017) 287--298], we obtained a cohomological obstruction to the existence of compact manifolds locally modelled on a homogeneous space. In this paper, we give a classification of the semisimple symmetric spaces to which this obstruction is applicable.
Keywords: Manifold locally modelled on a homogeneous space, Clifford-Klein form, semisimple symmetric space.
