Symmetry principles play a fundamental role in modern nuclear and part icle physics. The study of symmetry principles, which govern the Unive rse in which we live, is absolutely fundamental to modern subatomic ph ysics. Our quantum field theories are built around these symmetries wh ich their occasional violation not only surprises or delights, but can also offer deep insight into the dynamics of complicated systems. Thi s meeting brought together experts from around the world who are pushi ng our knowledge of symmetries such as parity, charge conjugation, and even Lorentz invariance to the limits. Future developments in theoret ical subatomic physics may be completely altered by hitherto unexpecte d discoveries of symmetry breaking. From neutrino oscillations to B-fa ctories, from beta decay to colliders to masers, the latest theoretica l and experimental developments in this field are documented. These pr oceedings present a valuable snapshot of the state of the art.
