These proceedings contain 11 invited papers and approximately 80 contributed papers presented at this international conference. The topics covered include: - noise theory and mechanisms, including parametric excitation in physical systems, computer simulation of Barkhausen jump field distribution and chaotic oscillations in Josephson junctions; - devices, including thermal noise in a high inductance SQUID, high frequency noise in Schottky barriers diodes and mode fluctuations in semiconductor laser; - biological systems including resistivity fluctuations in ionic solutions; - quantum noise, including properties of low temperature quantum noise and macroscopic quantum tunneling.
