The tenth annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium was held in September, 2004, in Irvine, California. Chaired by Pablo G. Debenedetti of Princeton University, the meeting included sessions on Multiscale Modeling, Designer Materials, Engineering for Extreme Environments, and Engineering and Entertainment.
U.S. Frontiers of Engineering is an annual meeting that brings together 100 of the nation's outstanding young engineers (ages 30-45) from industry, academia, and government to discuss pioneering technical and leading-edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. Participation is by invitation following a competitive nomination and selection process.
The National Academy of Engineering would like to express its gratitude to a number of meeting sponsors for their support of the 2004 USFOE Symposium.
