Topics discussed in this symposium are on the Galaxy, the Magellanic Clouds, elliptical galaxies, the structure of spirals and galaxy interactions, and the gas and star formation in galaxies. Papers are presented on the Galactic evolution and the star counts in the Galaxy, the physical parameters of reflection nebulae in the Galaxy, chemical abundances in the LMC and SMC planetary nebulae, and the initial mass functions of Magellanic Cloud star clusters, the morphological properties of radio elliptical galaxies, and the synthetic integrated fluxes and colors for elliptical galaxies. Attention is also given to the magnetic fields in M31, NGC 7331, NGC 2841, NGC 6946, and our Galaxy, two high-velocity encounters of elliptical galaxies, evidence for high-velocity gas in giant H II regions, molecules in external galaxies, a photometric study of the double-ring structure of NGC 4736, and the chemical and dynamical evolution of galactic discs.
