The workshop will have 9 contributed papers and 2 invited speakers. The contributed papers are organized into 5 sessions. Rather than entertaining questions immediately following each talk, the speakers will be asked to join a panel at the end of the session for a more in depth discussion.

The invited speakers are Dr. Almadena Chtchelkanova of NSF and Dr. Ethan Miller of UCSC.
