Fellow Memphis Area Scientists and Engineers:

It is our pleasure to host the 3rd Annual Memphis Area Engineering and Sciences Conference (MAESC 2001) at Christian Brothers University. The theme this year is Theoretical Thought to Practical Application. In the spirit of interdisciplinary communication, it is our goal to unite scientists and engineers as they explore new ideas and seek solutions to the problems that will face Shelby County in the future.

There are a total of thirty-six technical papers scheduled for presentation at the conference including ones on topics as diverse as Packaging, Earthquake Engineering and Environmental Science. To kick off this year's conference, Dr. Arthur Ellis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present Solids Are Like People: It's the Defects That Make Them Interesting. Dr. Ellis currently directs the education efforts of the National Science Foundations' Materials Research Science and Engineering Center on Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces.

The technical portion of the conference will conclude with a panel discussion consisting of representatives from the United States Geological Survey; Shelby County; City of Memphis; and Memphis Light, Gas, & Water. The topic of discussion will be the future of development in Shelby County.

The social program for this year's conference is provided by our sponsor, Grand Casino Tunica. A bus will be provided to take conference attendees to the Casino after the panel discussion is finished.

We have an exciting technical and social program planned, so please take advantage of the early registration discount. We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
