Abstract

The report that follows gives glimpses into the enormous amount of work in cosmology over the past three years, both in theory and in observations. It is impossible to do justice, within the space allotted, to all the exciting work and some important topics like structure formation could not be covered. Nevertheless, the contributors to different sections have done a conscientious job and I thank them all. Some of them had to step in to fill the gaps at short notice.
