and Law (STL) Program was established to monitor and explore
the growing number of areas in which the processes of legal decision
making utilize or impinge on the work of scientists and engineers. One of
the major activities of the STL Program is convening a distinguished panel
of individuals drawn from both the science and engineering and legal
