This is the sixth meeting of the annual Gone Fishing event in North America, for the presentation and discussion of new ideas and results in Poisson geometry.

The theme of this meeting is Poisson Geometry and Topological Field Theories, and we hope to stimulate interaction between Poisson geometry and field theories by encouraging some talks on field theories and related areas. We expect that three of the special 50 min lectures will focus on interactions between Poisson geometry and topological field theories. Shorter 25 min talks by participants on interactions between Poisson geometry and field theories are also welcome, but to encourage the broad development of the subject we certainly welcome proposals for talks on all areas of Poisson geometry. We especially encourage talks by members of underrepresented groups.

The meeting will last from Thursday afternoon to Sunday noon. Participants are expected to arrive on Thursday and leave Sunday afternoon. There will be four main talks of 50 minutes length. All participants, including junior participants, are invited to propose a 25 minute talk. We will accept proposals for short talks until February 28, 2017, or until the schedule is filled.

Special Lectures by:

* Francesco Bonechi (INFN)
* Alberto Cattaneo (Zurich)
* Pavel Mnev (Notre Dame)
* Chelsea Walton (Temple)


Besides eduroam, you can access ND Guest Wireless. Details are here.

All talks will be held in 127 Hayes-Healy Hall.  Registration and coffee breaks will be held in 257 Hurley Hall.  Please note that Hurley and Hayes-Healy are connected and located in the center of the campus.  The conference dinner will be held in the Lower Level Dining Room of McKenna Hall.
