This volume includes papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 1999 US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium held in September 1999. USFOE meetings bring together 100 outstanding engineers (ages 30 to 45) to exchange information about leading-edge technologies in a range of engineering fields. The 1999 symposium covered four topic areas: Drowning in data, Making sense of the human genome, Engineering novel structures, Energy for the future and its environmental impact, and Optics.  Appendixes include information about contributors, the symposium program, and a list of meeting participants.
