These proceedings present reviews and new results in the observational and theoretical study of cataclysmic variables (CVs) and related objects. A broad range of topics is included and there are thirteen reviews, covering magnetic and non-magnetic systems, accretion discs, observations of CVs from space, novae and symbiotic stars, X-ray binaries, supernovae and supersoft X-ray sources and post common envelope binaries and evolution. There is a comprehensive subject and object index. Audience: Astronomers and astrophysicists.
