Summary This volume contains the proceedings of the First Madagascar International Conference on High-Energy Physics, held in 2001. It presents material that includes introductory reviews of astrophysics, the status of electroweak theories, Higgs searches, and precision tests of the standard model. Results on CP violation from CERN's NA48 experiment are discussed, along with results from the Babar and Belle experiments at the B factories at SLAC in the US and KEK in Japan. Following that are theoretical talks on heavy quark decays and non-perturbative QCD. There are also discussions on QCD results from CERN's LEP and DESY's HERA colliders. Pre-conference presentations cover applications of the field in the environmental and medical domains
