I'd like to express my appreciation to all the 2013 attendees for an excellent conference. Dr. Jim Kitchell and his wife deserve special thanks for their particpation and advice during the fireside chat. The session chairs (Erika McPhee-Shaw, Susan Allen, Kristen Davis, Raphe Kudela, Drew Lucas, Falk Fedderson, Melissa Omand, and Parker MacCready) did a wonderful job in organizing sessions and keeping the meeting running on time.

Congratulations to the student presentation award winner, Kai Hally-Rosendahl.
