Abstract : This report is a summary of the 1997 DARPA-Defense Sciences Research Council Summer Conference held from July 8, through July 31, 1997, in La Jolla, California. The report is submitted to DARPA soon after the conference to allow timely utilization of the results from the conference workshops. During the year, workshops and program reviews are attended by smaller groups of Council members. These reports are made directly to DARPA and are included in the report submitted at the end of the contract year. The principal task of the ONR-DARPA Contract is to bring together a group of the country's leading scientists and engineers for an extended period, to permit them to apply their combined talents in studying and reviewing future research areas in defense sciences for the Department of Defense. The technical direction of the Council is by a Steering Committee comprised of seven representative members of the Council who work with DARPA management to select the relevant topics for the annual Summer Conference, and with the Council membership to develop new areas in defense research. The Council also serves as a resource for other DARPA offices. The membership of the Steering Committee and the Council varies from year to year in response to the research areas of major interest to the Department of Defense. The 1997 Steering Committee membership is given on the following page and the 1997 Council membership is given on pages v-vii.
