The June 1993 Workshop covered areas from low-dimensional systems to fully developed turbulence. One of the central aspects was the role played by solitons in the nonlinear evolution of otherwise complicated infinite dimensional systems. The topics of interest in these proceedings are centered in the following areas: magnetic and optical systems; biosystems and molecular systems; Josephson junctions and electrical transmission lines; low-dimensional electronic materials; lattice dynamics and localized modes; statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics of solitons; multi-dimensional structures and pattern formation; and numerical and analytical methods based on physical principles.
