Papers presented at an IIC congress and published in the contributions undergo a rigorous peer review process. Our Technical Committee on this occasion consists of Gerhard Banik (Germany), Astrid-Christiane Brandt-Grau (France), Katsuhiko Masuda (Japan), Debra Hess Norris and Abigail Quandt (USA) and Helen Shenton (UK). The papers were edited by Vincent Daniels, Alan Donnithorne and Perry Smith. Members of the Committee also selected the posters which form such an integral part of an IIC conference. The language of the conference and its publications was English.
