The half-size workshop was organized by Anton Alekseev (Geneve), Rui Loja Fernandes (Lisboa), Eckhard Meinrenken (Toronto) and Markus Pflaum (Frankfurt). Marius Crainic (Utrecht) also acted as an unofficial organizer. The programme consisted of 17 lectures and covered a range of areas in Poisson Geometry and its applications where significant progress has been achieved recently. The aim of the workshop was to emphasize the main themes in Poisson Geometry that play the role of driving forces and organizing principles of the field. A significant number of young researchers, who have made already important contributions to the field, participated in this meeting. During the workshop all participants were involved in a great number of informal discussions, some of which gave rise to new collaborations. In total, 27 researchers have participated in this meeting from institutions in 9 different countries in Europe, USA and Canada, including 4 researchers from German institutions. The organizers and participants thank the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach for providing a truly inspiring atmosphere for this conference. In the following we include the abstracts in alphabetical order.
