The third and final meeting in the program took place in Moscow and St. Petersburg, December 12-20, 1992. It focused on the export control issues surrounding three important technologies with applications in both the civilian and military sectors: advanced materials, optoelectronics, high-speed computing. The NAS delegation included experts in export control as well as the specific technologies discussed. The Russian delegation included key representatives of both the Russian military and scientific communities.

In preparation for the meeting, both Academies commissioned case studies in the three technology areas described above. These case studies are included in the text of this publication. In addition, both delegations prepared a joint statement which was released in April 1993 after endorsement by both Academies and is included here. The joint statement makes recommendations to the governments of the respective academies in three broad areas: access to technologies of proliferation concern, national security concerns, and confidence-building measures.
