Abstract : The 1993 Physical Metallurgy Gordon Research Conference on 'Materials by Design' was held from 2 to 6 August, 1993 at Plymouth State College South, Plymouth NH, with J.B. Cohen and G.B. Olson of Northwestern University as chairmen. Eleven of the twenty-six speakers were from foreign countries, and the nearly 100 total participants showed a similar distribution. Overall, there was a healthy mixture of scientists and engineers from universities, national laboratories, and private industry, including young researchers and graduate students as well as established scientists. The program explored a new relationship between science and engineering tuned to the new responsibilities of the science enterprise in the post-Cold War era. (jg)
