The study of the evolution of galaxies has made remarkable progress in recent years and is currently undergoing a transformation arising from the application of new observational and theoretical tools. Twenty-one invited reviews, twenty-six contributed papers and 137 poster papers cover the wide variety of recent developments, present new insights and demonstrate the rapid increase in our knowledge about galaxy evolution and formation.

`I do recommend this proceedings volume to interested scientists/researchers, both senior and junior, in astronomical observatories, in astronomical, astrophysical and theoretical physics departments and research institutions and the corresponding libraries. This volume (with a wealth of beautiful conference photographs) is a very good source of data, giving a more or less complete picture of the active research on galactic evolution and shedding new light on it.'
