Abstract : The Ninth International Symposium on the Applications of Ferroelectrics (ISAF '94) was held at the Penn State Scanticon Conference Center, the Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania, during August 7-10, 1994. The Symposium program contained 377 scientific papers on various aspects of ferroelectrics and their applications. There were 116 oral (42 invited) and 261 poster papers presented in three parallel oral sessions and in the poster sessions each day over the three days of the meeting. The meeting covered major advances in the areas of piezoelectrics, dielectrics, thin film ferroelectrics, actuators, smart materials, pyroelectrics, nonlinear optical ferroelectrics, photorefractive materials, and their applications. The conference was attended by international scientists representing 21 countries. The geographical distribution of the papers, international and national, is represented in the accompanying table and graphs. (MM)
