Abstract : A workshop was organized and conducted by the Materials Science Division of the Army Research Office to discuss and identify multi-disciplinary approaches and opportunities in the design and processing of materials at molecular-micron dimensions. The workshop consisted of three general sessions covering Material Building Blocks, Transduction and Functional Materials Response. The participants were invited to present their latest research interests relative to these topics. 'One liners' were generated and organized to describe collectively the participants thoughts, impressions or conclusions stimulated by each paper. Opportunities for the design at small dimension also include the notion of 'Smart Materials'. The research themes and opportunities generated from the discussions are given for each presentation and are highlighted for future research and development.
