Abstract : The conference was held in the village of Les Diablerets, where most of the participants were lodged at the Eurotel and some at the near-by Hotel des Sources. The oral sessions were held at the very nice conference center of Les Diablerets, situated only 3 min walk from the Eurotel. The poster sessions were held at the Eurotel in a room adjacent to the lobby. The situation of Les Diablerets and the facilities at the Eurotel and the Conference Center gave an excellent frame for the conference and contributed to its success. I would also like to mention here the remarkable service offered by the Eurotel to the participants. We had 120 participants which is about the optimum for this type of conference. The conference was truly international with participants from Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the United States. The scientific program consisted of 30 invited talks, short poster presentations and 4 poster sessions. A copy of this program as well as a list of the posters are joined to the present report. The scope of this conference was to address and discuss the present status of the research on high temperature superconductors and other superconducting materials. The conference is one in a series of Gordon conferences on superconductivity held earlier in Oxnard, California. The format of the conference was the one usually used for the Gordon conferences 3 or 4 talks in the morning, free time for discussions in the beginning of the afternoon followed by a 2 hour poster session. The evening sessions had 2 or 3 talks. Overall the quality of the presentations were excellent. The speakers gave enough background material in the introduction so that the audience could follow the most recent developments.
