This volume represents the Proceedings of the World Conference on Embryo Transfer, In Vitro Fertilization and Instrumental Insemination held on September 24-27, 1980 in Kiel, West Germany. Professor Dr. L. Mettler and Dr. H. H. Riedel of Frauenklinik der UniversiUit in Kiel were the local co- chairpersons, who contributed very richly to the program. Basic research, clinical trials, preparation of manuscripts, editorial assistance and presentation of results were generously supported by the following institutions and organizations: Kulturministerium des Landes Schleswig-Holstein Medizinische FakuItat der Christian-Albrechts-UniversiUit, Kiel Wayne State University School of Medicine; Detroit, Michigan, USA C.
