Abstract: A bordism classification is studied for periodic maps of prime period p preserving a symplectic structure on a smooth manifold. In sharp contrast to the corresponding oriented bordism, this theory contains nontrivial ptorsion even when p is odd. Calculation gives an upper limit on the size of this p-torsion.
