The Fifth Saint Louis Workshop in Wide Bandgap Nitrides was held August 4 - 7, 1998 in St. Louis, MO. The workshop was attended by some 80 researchers from mainly the United States and very topical and bottleneck type problemsissues were discussed. The workshop is unique in its approach in that short presentations on pertinent issues are followed by lengthy discussion. Following a group of somewhat related presentations, an overall discussion period involving the authors of that session and the audience is conducted. The forum provides a plenty of time for discussions of important and unresolved issues as opposed presenting polished and finished results typically presented in standardconventional meeting. The participants over the years have been and are still supportive of the role the workshop plays for the community. It should be mentioned that this workshop carries the distinction of being the first ever meeting in the field in the world.
