Summary 
This volume is a compilation of new results and surveys on the current state of some aspects of the foliation theory presented during the conference "FOLIATIONS 2012". It contains recent materials on foliation theory which is related to differential geometry, the theory of dynamical systems and differential topology. Both the original research and survey articles found in here should inspire students and researchers interested in foliation theory and the related fields to plan his/her further research.
