The workshop organizers put a tremendous amount of e?ort into soliciting and - lecting papers with a balance of high quality, new ideas and new applications. We asked all workshops to follow a rigid paper selection process, including the procedure to ensure that any Program Committee members are excluded from the paper review process of any paper they are involved with. A requirement about the overall paper acceptance rate of no more than 50% was also imposed on all the workshops.
