Editorial Comments: In the following we are reporting excerpts from roundtable discussions on the topics listed above. The moderator for these panel discussions was Berni Alder (Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, Berkeley, CA, U.S.A.), Unfortunately, only parts of these discussions are reported herein due to the fact that the participants were not always within range of the microphone used to record these proceedings. The editors of this volume wish to beg your forgiveness for not having foreseen this problem.
