This year's conference received 155 submissions which is a testament to the health and growth of our discipline, but also presented a considerable challenge for the 29 members of the program committee: that we had the pleasure to chair. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the committee for all of their hard work. However their task would have been far harder without the support of the wider community - since so many of you acted as secondary reviewers of submissions. The conference would not have been possible without all those efforts. The program of 9 plenaries, 27 talks and 58 posters represents some of the best research within the FPSAC community and at its interfaces with other fields. Many many thanks. Last, but not least, we are especially grateful to Nick Beaton who took up the formidable challenge of collecting, "cleaning" and compiling the LaTeX sources for the 86 extended abstracts that are contained in these proceedings.
