Title: Final technical progress report to the Department of Energy on Condensed-matter and materials physics study

The Committee on Condensed Matter and Materials Physics (CCMMP) was created in spring 1996. The CCMMP published two reports. The first, The Physics of Materials: How Science Affects our Lives, was published in 1997. It was based on a workshop held in 1996. Written at a popular level, it tells about the pervasiveness of technology in life today in the U.S. The second report was a more detailed, inclusive, and scholarly assessment. It was published in 1999 under the title Condensed Matter and Materials Physics: Basic Research for Tomorrow's Technology. This report is a survey of the field for the past decade and an assessment of the future of the field. The report's key recommendations addressed 8 points that are listed here.
