This is the fourth conference which explores the roles of experiment in 
science and the reasons why one experiment legitimately plays such roles. 
In this conference we wish to emphasize answers to the question, "What 
Makes a Good Experiment?" One can distinguish between conceptually 
important experiments, those classified by their relation to theory; 
testing theory, calling for a new theory etc. and technically good 
experiments, those that measure a quantity of scientific interest with 
greater accuracy and precision than had been done previously. Both types 
of experiment must be methodologically good, experiments that give 
reasoned and valid arguments for the credibility of their results.
