School, June 27 - July 2

The Summer School on Poisson Geometry aims to introduce the participant to Poisson Geometry (and related fields), as well as to present some of the more recent developments, and open problems, in the field. The school targets students in their final years, PhD students, young researchers. Required background: basic differential geometry.

The school will take place at the University of Geneva:
Sciences II building
Quai Ernest-Ansermet 30, 1205 Geneva
Room A300
