102A (Washington Convention Center )Since the demonstration of Bose-Einstein condensation in 1995, the science and applications of coherent matter waves have crossed the border between optical technology and atomic physics and have opened up research frontiers that were heralded by Nobel Prizes in Physics in 1997, 2001, and 2005. This symposium presents contributions by three junior researchers, each a leader in his or her field, that exhibit the richness of this subject, which touches on fundamental physics and prospective "post-electronic" applications.
