A total of 22 accepted papers will be presented during the conference, along with 7 tutorials by leading researchers in the field and 3 invited talks by prominent researchers in related fields. As with other conferences, a poster session and 7 post-conference workshops provide forums for newly emerging work and topics.
The site of the conference will be Port Jefferson, New York located 50 miles east of New York City and 7 miles from Stony Brook University.
