It was attended by 73 registered participants coming from 18 di erent countries. A total of 40 oral papers were delivered including a conference summary. Furthermore 16 posters were presented. The conference was the main event in a series of talks, public lectures and d- cussion meetings about Chaos in Astronomy that have taken place at the Research Center for Astronomy. We underline three special talks that have been given by D. Kazanas (NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center), D. Lynden- Bell (Cambridge, UK) and C. Tsallis (Brazilian Academy of Science). The main sponsor of the conference was the Alexander S. Onassis Fo- dation. In addition the conference has been supported by the General S- retariat for Research and Technology, the National Observatory of Athens, and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture. We are grateful to all sponsors for their generosity. We also express our gratitude to the Academy of Athens and to the - rectorship of the Biomedical Research Foundation, where the conference took place. 497 pp. Englisch.
