The SIMS XVII meeting held September 14th-18th, 2009 in Toronto was a wonderful success. We anticipate additional information on the website reporting on the conference in the next two weeks (photos, reports, etc.)

In the meantime, following from the great fellowship and scientific and engineering work that was reported at the conference, the organizers remind you that Proceedings papers are due at the Wiley SIA website by September 30, 2009.

The editors will be working diligently to get reviews accomplished in the next month.

Best wishes from the Co-Chairs,

Joe Gardella, Leo Lau and Rana Sodhi
