1 he workshop greatly benefited by the advice and counsel of its three Executive Advisors:
Dr. Art Guenther from Los Alamos, Dr. Magne Kristiansen from Texas Tech University, and
Dr. Gennadi Mesyats from the Soviet Academy of Sciences. Dr. Mesyats represented the
Organizing Committee in the Soviet Union by selecting the scientists who attended the
workshop as invited guests. Drs. Guenther and Kristiansen helped shape the workshop and its
organization by drawing from their previous experiences with many other workshops and
conferences. At Granlibakken, they all provided valuable advice to the committee and staff
members, which helped keep the sessions well-focused. We gratefully acknowledge and
appreciate the advice and guidance you gave us.
The five working groups were each represented by a keynote speaker who shared their
valuable technical experience and put into perspective the issues each group addressed in the
private sessions that followed. We acknowledge the unique contributions from the speakers
and appreciate the preparation each lecture required. Thank you for your leadership and
The five working groups also were represented by three invited authors, each of whom
prepared a presentation for their respective working group sessions and a publication for this
proceedings. The papers and presentations addressed specific technical issues that were
shared with working group members and used as initial discussion topics. Thank you for your
contributions to the workshop discussions and to these proceedings.
A special thanks also goes to Bill Parson and his staff at Granlibakken for their very
professional help during the workshop preparation. In all our pre-workshop business dealings,
the Granlibakken staff was always informative, cooperative, very skilled, and willing to
assist with any problem, large or small. During the workshop, the staff handled our unforeseen
difficulties with polish and style. Thank you Bill and Norma. You were the perfect hosts.
The Editorial Staff also recognizes the contributions of four very special individuals:
William Abraham, Gloria Davalos, Sally Twisselmann, and Sue Winkler. In their respective
roles, Sally Twiselmann was the Workshop Secretary and Gloria Davalos was her assistant.
Sue Winkler and Bill Abraham were both Workshop Coordinators. Each of these four people
helped to secure a successful meeting by giving long work hours, creative ideas, and dedication
to an effort that was full of new and trying experiences. We on the Editorial Staff salute your
contributions and recognize that great things are accomplished only when caring people are
involved. Thank You.
