This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th IMA International Conference on the Mathematics of Surfaces, held in Sheffield, UK in September 2007. The papers cover a range of ideas from underlying theoretical tools to industrial uses of surfaces. Research is reported on theoretical aspects of surfaces as well as more practical topics.
