The IAU Symposium No. 77 on "Structure and PrQperties of Nearby Galaxies" was held in Bad Miinstereifel, F. R. G., from 22 - 26 August 1977. The Symposium was financially supported by the IAU, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft a~d the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. the aim of the Symposium was to compare recent high-resolution radio continuum and HI-line results on nearby galaxies with both new and established optical material and with recent theoretical work. Over 100 astronomers actively working in these fields discussed the "state of the art" from their various points of view. The Symposium was sponsored by IAU Commissions 28 and 40. The Scientific Organizing Committee consisted of R.J. Allen (Chairman), K.C. Freeman, I.V. Gossachinski, G. Monnet, J.H. Oort, M.S. Roberts, S.E. Strom, A. Toomre and R. Wielebinski. In order to limit the scope of the Symposium the S.O.C. ruled that nearby galaxies have distances of 0.5 to about 15Mpc; consequently topics mainly concerned structural features occurring on length scales ranging roughly from 0.1 to 50 kpc.
