This Symposium begun with a suggestion for a gathering to honour Emer­ itus Professor Robert Hanbury Brown at the social gathering of his eightieth birthday. He asked that such a assembly can be on a subject that might be of profit to the Sydney college Stellar Interferometer (SUSI) application. With SUSI and several excessive angular solution tools both in operation or approaching line in the subsequent decade, and with advances in astrometry, spectroscopy and in theoretical types of stellar atmospheres and interiors, it either applicable and well timed to carry a symposium on "Fundamental Stellar homes: the interplay among remark and thought. " The emphasis of the assembly used to be at the severe review of the qual­ ity, accuracy, and clients for development of the observational information and theoretical versions, at the remarkable difficulties in stellar astrophysics, and at the feasibility of accomplishing the observational and theoretical advances required for his or her resolution. Invited papers comprised the key a part of the oral application and the audio system answered to the problem issued via the clinical setting up Committee to severely evaluate the present prestige and customers for his or her strong point. The Symposium was once opened by means of the Chancellor of the college of Sydney, Emeritus Professor Dame Leonie Kramer, who welcomed the 126 members from 22 nations on behalf of the collage. The oral software incorporated . fifty two invited studies and papers and 10 contributed papers.
