Summary: In the article, the method of spherical reconstructions of smooth manifolds is applied to the computation of some groups of symplectic cobordisms. Namely, it is proved that \(\Omega^5_{Sp} = \mathbb Z_2\), \(\Omega^6_{Sp} = \mathbb Z_2\) and \(\Omega^7_{Sp} = 0\). The indicated values of the groups of cobordisms for dimensions 5 and 6 are known and follow from arguments of the Adams spectral sequence for \(Sp\)-cobordisms. The new result is the fact that the seventh group of cobordisms equals 0. This is the fundamental result of the article. The theorem concerning the reconstruction of manifolds with a quasisymplectic structure in the normal bundle, which is proved in the article, and the theorem on integer values of Atiyah-Hirzebruch constitute the basis for the proof.
