All papers were peer reviewed. The Sixth Latin American Symposium on Nuclear Applications covered the most active topics in basic nuclear physics which were grouped into four broad categories, namely, nuclear structure, nuclear reactions, subnuclear physics, and nuclear thermodynamics and dynamics. It also placed a significant emphasis on the applications of nuclear science and nuclear instrumentation to a wide range of fields of knowledge, from novel medical uses of these techniques, through materials and environmental sciences to art and archaeology. An up-to-date overview of all these subjects was presented through a number of plenary talks reported in longer articles complimented by a larger number of short articles describing detailed work along the different lines. Although the level of the articles is suited for the specialist in each field, the audience and potential interested readership extends far beyond.
