The 44 contributions to the March 2012 conference present IR and sub-millimeter surveys portraying the various stages of planet formation and evolution, and explore the correlation between optical and UV spectral properties to the presence of planetary companions. The closing papers describe the large millimeter telescope (LMT) project in Mexico, the planet hunting and astero-seismology explorer spectrophotometer (PHASES) project, the Cananea high resolution spectrograph for determining stellar chemical abundances, and the scintillator cosmic ray super telescope. B&w images are provided.
