On March 8-13, 2004, a meeting was organized at the Luminy CIRM (France) on arithmetic and differential Galois groups, reflecting the growing interactions between the two theories. The present volume contains the proceedings of this conference. It covers the following themes: moduli spaces (of curves, of coverings, of connexions), including the recent developments on modular towers; the arithmetic of coverings and of differential equations (fields of definition, descent theory); fundamental groups; the inverse problems and methods of deformation; and the algorithmic aspects of the theories, with explicit computations or realizations of Galois groups.
