Abstract:

The program, participants 34 from seven countries and abstracts of the papers presented at the workshop are given. The papers cover a wide range of phenomena in which electric and magnetic fields exert a significant influence and which offer potential for beneficial technological applications. Comments and recommendations by the participants are presented. These include an expression of the dire need to better understand the mechanisms involved and the use of electric and magnetic fields to a produce new materials, b process amorphous, nonequilibrium, nanocrystalline and composite materials, and c fabricate special architectured structures. Also, the establishment of a Center on the general subject of the effects of electric and magnetic fields was strongly urged to promote interaction and cooperation among the research workers in the field and to develop the state-of-the-art required for technological applications.
