The conference proceedings have been sent to the printer. Copies will be distributed to participants in late December and should be available for purchase early 2007


IAU Symposium 234 was held in Hawaii in Spring 2006. It focussed on our current understanding of the origin and evolution of planetary nebulae and of PN populations; the key role that PNs play as multi-wavelength laboratories for our understanding of atomic, molecular, dust and plasma processes in diverse astrophysical environments; the means by which the wonderfully diverse morphologies of PNs are obtained; the influence of PNs on the interstellar media of galaxies, including chemical enrichment, and the ever-growing use of their narrow high-luminosity emission lines to probe the dynamics and mass distributions of galaxies and of the intergalactic medium of clusters of galaxies.
