Abstract : Layered materials and systems based on metallic, intermetallic, polymeric and ceramic constituents are becoming increasingly important to meet the structural requirements of current and future high-performance products. This award was used to support a symposium entitled "Layered Materials for Structural Applications," sponsored by the Materials Research Society. The symposium drew 41 invited and contributed papers. The symposium was divided into four emphasis areas: Applications, Processing, Stability Issues, and Mechanical Behavior. A symposium proceedings was published and is available through the Materials Research Society as Symposium Proceedings, Volume 434.
