This volume includes 14 papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 2015 US Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium held in September 2015. 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 2015 symposium covered four topic areas: Cybersecurity and Privacy, Engineering the Search for Earth-like Exoplanets, Optical and Mechanical Metamaterials, and Forecasting Natural Disasters. The papers describe leading-edge research on such topics as designing materials with unprecedented capabilities, building image-relaying mechanisms to better explore exoplanets, and improving medical device cybersecurity, among other topics. Appendixes include information about contributors, the symposium program, and a list of meeting participants. This is the twenty-first volume in the USFOE series.
