Short description of the event: 

This will be a 2-weeks event: the first week is a "Summer School", and the second one is a "Conference". This is the 8th event of a series of biennial meetings that have previously taken place in Warsaw (1998), Luminy (2000), Lisbon (2002), Luxembourg (2004), Tokyo (2006), Lausanne (2008) and Rio de Janeiro (2010) (see http://poissongeometry.org/). For junior participants, we plan to offer financial assistance towards living expenses. We also expect to offer several merit-based fellowships that will also provide travel support.
