Abstract : The objective of ICONO'3 was to bring together top researchers - whose expertise spans materials design, material characterization, device fabrication, and integrated device architectures - to the captive setting of a small island to discuss and assess progress in the field of organic nonlinear optics (meeting headquarters on Marco Island, Florida). AFOSR funds were used to partially offset the travel expenses of U.S. invited speakers and students. This conference was motivated by 2 previous AFOSR-supported conference sessions that were held in Val Thorens, France in the Winter of 1994 (ICONO'1); and in Kusatsu, Japan in the summer of 1995 (ICONO'2). - The demand for such a meeting was evidenced by full-capacity attendance at the last three meetings (ICONO'1 ICONO'2 and ICONO'3). The meeting has succeeded in bringing together a group of internationally distinguished researchers to the United States to rigorously discuss and asses the field. ( a majority of attendees were from abroad).
