Joint message by Sarah E. Thompson and Abraham Schroeder:
 We are very happy to participate in this groundbreaking conference. We look forward to comparing our experiences with those of colleagues from around the world, as all of us explore the application of new technologies to problems that (as in our case) may have been difficult or impossible to solve until very recently.
