This conference was organized to bring together researchers and practitioners working in several geometry-based disciplines. Because of the theoretical needs of several of the applications areas, input was sought from pure mathematicians whose research and general background knowledge was believed to impact on certain stalled applications efforts. In that regard the conference was successful. The communication between the pure and applied camps was good. In summary, the conference revealed that some of the subdisciplines of applied geometry, are becoming more and more dependent on carefully laid mathematical foundations. It was difficult to miss the fact that most of the practitioners are lacking in the relevant mathematical background, and the theoretical mathematical background, and the theoretical mathematicians have missed some important applications-motivated theoretical questions. It is with anticipation that we watch the next two years for important mathematical development in applied geometry, and its transfer to the engineering community. The week in Albany is viewed as a catalyst.
