XMM satellites were also presented. Concerning extra-galactic cartography, res ults from the local universe were discussed, like the distribution of super-clusters, and methods to be used with the VLT and the Planck and Hersehe! (ESA, 2007) satellites. The latest results from the 2dF galaxy redshift survey were also debated. The Organization of this workshop is indebted to the colleagues of the Local Organizing Comittee for the help and good humour provided before, during and after the workshop. Special thanks are due to Carlos Martins for the great help and effort provided in the critical moments. We acknowledge the financial support from FCT/Portugal under POCTI Pro gram from Quadro Comunitario de Apoio III that also made possible the public ation of these Proceedings and to Sociedade Portuguesa de Astronomia without which the organization of this workshop would not be possible.
