Poisson 2006 is the 5th in a series of international conferences on Poisson geometry. The conference will focus on recent advances in Poisson geometry and its links with other fields in mathematics and physics.
Conference venue: National Olympics Memorial Youth Center (NYC), Tokyo.
There will be a School on Poisson geometry and related topics at Keio University (Hiyoshi Campus) in the week preceding the conference, from May 31 to June 2.

Participants to Poisson 2006 might be interested to attend the International Conference on Toric Topology, Osaka City University, May 29 - June 3, 2006.
