According to the program I see that I am fortunately supposed only to make some “concluding remarks” rather than provide a summary of the entire meeting. So I don’t have such a difficult job. We have had about four and a half days of very concentrated talks and discussions. For my own part — and I think many people would agree with me — it has really been one of the best meetings I have ever attended in many respects, but in one respect in particular. Namely, that of having had such a substantial number of important experimental measurements described so concisely and then having had these experiments and their implications fully discussed by such a high proportion of the leading workers in the particular fields in question. So it has been possible to reach a consensus on many topics, or at least to have them argued out in a rather complete way. I think we are all extremely grateful to Dr. Pollack and Professor Sugi for having arranged the scientific program so well, for having encouraged us to be concise in our talks, and for having provided plenty of time for discussion.
