The Program Committee seeks submissions on the entire range of topics.

Authors of accepted manuscripts will be allowed (but not required to use) twenty minutes to present their work. Any unusual requirements, such as additional time/antitime or special equipment, can and should be arranged through the organizers at info AT sigbovik DOT org. We will also accept prerecorded talks.
