For nearly 2 years, the SC2001 technical program team has contributed
time for planning behind the scenes, enlisting our industry's leaders,
brainstorming ideas, and soliciting technical content. It has certainly
been a busy time, but it has also been rewarding even fun sometimes!
We believe we have crafted a stimulating, engaging program which is
in concert with the timely challenges of our industry. By leveraging
the strengths of past SC programs, we offer a stable foundation of technical
content. But we also offer some experiments to add to the excitement
and controversy! We hope you will always find something of particular
interest throughout our program.
