As Chairperson-elect of the Council, I wish to express my appreciation to all who participated in this 16th Conference. I trust you have enjoyed this conference, as I have, as well as your visit to the Santa Clara Valley. Much information has been presented here, not only in the more than 70 formal presentations, but also in evening sessions, meetings, and informal sharing and interaction. We hope we have provided adequate opportunities for informal networking, as this can be equally valuable as the scheduled papers and presentations.
