OCTOBER 25-27, 1999



This symposium is the natural follow on to the first international conference on this topic held in 1992 in Boston. This, the second symposium, follows up on the latest developments in this tremendously active field. The primary focus of this meeting is to provide a forum for the discussion of cutting edge advancements in the field and to review and consolidate the accomplishments which have been achieved thus far.
