Abstract : As has been the case in previous conferences the focus of EP2DS-10 was tne fundamental physics and phenomena related to electronic excitations in systems exhibiting dimensionality less than three. In spite of the specificity and limited dimensionality of the conference title, a large fraction of the papers presented was concerned with dimensionality less than two, consistent with the trends of the past few conferences. Approximately 30% of the papers presented were concerned with electronic phenomena associated with one and zero dimensions, reflecting the general directions of this field. A large number of papers again were concerned with the quantum Hall effect, the fractional quantum Hall effect and the regime of electron densities, temperatures and magnetic fields associated with the Wigner crystal. A large fraction of the meeting was also devoted to quantum wires and dots and to mesoscopic phenomena, including chaotic motion of carriers in laterally patterned nanostructures. There was a special invited symposium featuring studies of few-electron transport in lateral nano- structures, and a focused session on low-dimensional organic crystals, a new topic for this series.
