The “8th International Workshop on Planetary, Solar and Heliospheric Radio Emissions” was held in October 2016 in the historical castle Schloss Seggau, about 35 km south of Graz, Austria. The proceedings of this workshop are now available as the book Planetary Radio Emissions VIII (PRE VIII), which is a continuation of the “PRE silver series” issued by the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press. All contributions were peer-reviewed under the guidance of the four editors. For more than three decades the developments in the field of planetary and solar radio emissions have been documented in the PRE proceedings. The new volume PRE VIII contains articles about the first observations from the Juno spacecraft, which started to orbit Jupiter in mid-2016, and articles analysing the data of Cassini, whose mission ended in September 2017. A large number of contributions deals with the topic of Jovian radio emissions, where the ground-based support of space missions has become increasingly important, and where the statistical analysis of years of data have led to new conclusions about the influence of the Galilean moons. The large ground-based radio telescopes (LOFAR, UTR-2, GURT, LWA, NDA and others) have other important scientific targets besides Jupiter, namely the Sun and exoplanets. The articles about exoplanets in PRE VIII give the impression that a first detection of radio emission signatures could happen in a not too distant future. Other contributions deal with terrestrial radio emissions and theory. Finally, the technical developments in instrumentation have led to the discovery of new fine structures in radio emissions or to improved solar radio imaging, and newly developed databases should make radio data available to all interested scientists around the globe.
