The symposium was organized by H.H. Fernholz (Hermann-Fottinger-Institut fur Thermo- und Fluiddynamik der Technischen Universitat Berlin) and E. Krause (Aerodynamisches Institut der RWTH Aachen). After two success ful Euromech Colloquia on the same topic in Berlin 1972 and Trondheim 1975 the organizers felt that another meeting should be convened, this time with participants from inside and out side Europe. The aim of the symposium has been to bring together scientists who are actively engaged in boundary layer research, both ex perimental and theoretical. The scope of the meeting encompass ed incompressible and compressible three-dimensional turbulent boundary layers. Special emphasis was laid on economical cal culation methods, on measurements of fluctuating quantities and on measuring techniques designed for and applied success fully to three-dimensional boundary layers. From among thirty-four papers submitted for presentation, twenty six contributions of twenty-five minutes each were selected by the European mernbers of the Scientific Committee. Furthermore there were four invited lectures of forty-five minutes. Short discussions were held directly after each presentation with a long discussion period at the end of each day. The final dis cussion on the last day of the symposium was recorded on tape and is presented in a slightly shortened version as the last contribution in this volume.
