Summary

WAILEA, HAWAII-- About 150 chemists, physicists, and engineers gathered here from 28 to 30 October to discuss the latest big developments in the science of small. In between dips in the ocean and mountain hikes, researchers heard about efforts to manipulate nanosized objects and improve optical data storage. And one young scientist offered hope to many that the future of their field is in good hands.
