The first ideas for the symposium were generated in Brussels in the summer of 1986, dur- ing exquisite lunches in between HST proposal consortium meetings. At the time it was expected that soon after the previous IAU symposium (No. 116) devoted to luminous hot massive stars, a bonanza of new exciting observational material would become available, together with significant advances on the theoretical front. Also it was felt that Wolf- Rayet stars should feature predominantly, because that had not been the case since IAU Symposium No. 99 in 1981. Tradition requires that IAU symposia on hot massive stars take place in high lumi- nosity beach resorts, and after Buenos Aires, Qualicum Beach, Cozumel and Porto Heli, Bali sounded like a reasonable place. Therefore we were only too pleased with the invitation of the Indonesian astronomical community to host the symposium in Sanur (Denpasar). The aim of the symposium was to bring together both observers and theoreticians active in the field of Wolf-Rayet stars and related objects, to present and discuss their recent results, in order to expose to what extent consensus exists as to the physical and chemical properties of Wolf-Rayet stars, their evolutionary status and their interrelations with other massive stars in galaxies.
