The annual Reviews in Modern Astronomy was established in 1988 in order to bring the scientific events held by the German Astronomical Society to the attention of the worldwide astronomical community. The series is devoted exclusively to the Karl Schwarzschild Lectures and to publishing reports from leading scientists on recent progress and scientific achievements in their respective fields of research. This volume continues the series with 16 invited reviews and highlight contributions presented during the Society's International Scientific Conference on the topic of "Cosmic Matter," held in Wurzburg, Germany, in September 2007. The papers published here discuss a wide range of hot topics, including cosmology, high-energy astrophysics, astroparticle physics gravitational waves, extragalactic and stellar astronomy -- representing the roadmap for astroparticle physics in Europe.
