Abstracts of presentations:

This wiki houses individual wikis for each presenter - these are listed below, and also at right, under Navigation. Each wiki includes the presenter's abstract and provides a Comment option that is open to public, not just Landing users. This way, you can comment on a given presentation asynchronously - that is, not just at the time of the presentation, but at your convenience.

Papers are listed according to the symposium schedule, not in alphabetical order.
