*In response to the call for papers, 173 papers were submitted to the conference. These papers were evaluated on the basis of their significance, novelty, technical quality, and practical impact. As in previous years, reviewing was "double-blind": the identities of reviewers were not revealed to the authors of the papers and author identities were not revealed to the reviewers. The program committee meeting was held electronically, yielding intensive discussion over a period of two weeks. Of the papers submitted, 42 were selected for presentation at the conference, giving an acceptance rate under 25%. Many thanks to the Program Committee for their careful reviews and to all of the authors who submitted papers.
