Each year since 1982 the Committee on Science, Engineering, and Public Policy has briefed the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science Foundation on important progress in U.S. science and technology and major areas of research opportunity. This year the research briefing topics are "Order, Chaos, and Patterns: Aspects of Nonlinearity"; "Biological Control in Managed Ecosystems"; "Chemical Processing of Materials and Devices for Information Storage and Handling"; and "High-Temperature Superconductivity." The 1987 briefings also cover a policy topic, "Research and Research Funding: Impact, Trends, and Policies," a new step toward addressing a wider range of issues in the research briefing format.
