Abstract : This volume includes 16 papers from the National Academy of Engineering's 2008 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) Symposium. USFOE meetings bring together 100 outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) to exchange information about leading-edge technologies in a range of engineering fields. The 2008 symposium covered four topic areas: drug delivery systems. emerging nanoelectronic devices, cognitive engineering, and countering the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The papers focus on cutting-edge developments.
