Note to authors: Invited submission only. Two pages have an approximate word count of 1,700-2,000; one or two figures; all artwork must be high resolution and royalty free; the short column format does not allow for references, so expand the references enough so people can locate the material, such as including the main author's name or remove them. All material will be professionally edited. Write for a broad but technical audience. I suggest a "vision"  introduction followed by one or two examples with concrete technical details.
