The second Franco-Japanese Singularity Conference was held in the CIRM (Marseille-Luminy) in September 2002. The proceedings of the meeting published in this volume show not only the diversity, but also the consistency of the fields discussed. The main topics covered by the lectures were characteristic classes, residues, stratifications, singularities of curves and surfaces, valuations, resolution of singularities, and toric varieties. Several papers present the results recently obtained in the field so as to be accessible to non-specialists and to users of singularity theory.

The volume is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and topology.
