These proceedings present the Symposium events in chronological order. Presented papers have received minor editing and have been typed. Time constraints prohibited final text proofreading by individual authors, consequently, the editorial staff accept responsibility for any errors.

Question and answer periods were tape recorded. Transcripts of these discussions are given at the end of each presented paper within the proceedings. Severe editing of the transcripts was sometimes necessary to curtail the length of the question and answer dialogue. We apologize for any unwitting alterations in meaning.

Comments made during the two round-table workshop sessions have also been noted and transcribed. Findings which achieved consensus at the individual tables were read out at the conclusion of each session. There was a considerable variety of opinions expressed and, within the proceedings, an attempt has been made to include all points of view. The opinions most often expressed are listed first.
