Abstract : The 3rd Annual Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water was held in West Dover, Vermont October 16th thru 19th, 2008. The conference was organized by Vermont Photonics Technologies Corporation of Bellows Falls, Vermont, and was attended by an international group of 51 scientists who presented 31 papers during the 4 days. The cost of organizing this event was approximately $43,000, offset by attendance fees, sponsorship by 2 commercial companies, and a grant from the Office of Naval Research (ONR). Subsidies were paid to 31 speakers to offset their travel expenses in the amount of $23,400. All speakers who received travel subsidies from ONR support were so notified in writing. The consensus of the attendees was that the conference was very informative, having offered a wide range of papers presented by scientists with varied interests and backgrounds.
