What you see before you this year, is the result of many years of iterative refinement of submission process and information processing. This year, however, the current economic climate has forced us to eliminate some of the features of previous Digests. In particular, the continuation pages (typically including a micrograph and occasionally summary data) has been eliminted from the print version, but is available in the Digest CD and in the Conference DVD. Similarly, other items have been eliminated from the print version but included in the CD/DVD: the Glossary, hotel maps, as well in the print version various sections have been compressed to save space: Tutorials, Forums, etc. Finally, both to reduce cost and to be more green, we have introduced a new type of paper involving using partially recycled material. Again, this year, the technical editorial staff included six Editors (G. Gulak, V. Gaudet, J. Haslett, S. Mirabbasi, K. Pagiamztis, and K.C. Smith), under the direction of a managing editor (Laura Fujino).
