This volume is the result of a lot of hard work by the authors and the editorial board. When we changed the submission date to get The Annual to press earlier in the year, it meant we had to have submissions sooner than expected, reviews turned around quickly and revisions made as soon as possible. Everyone cooperated in getting this edition of The Annual out following the publisher's deadlines. I will be forever grateful for everyone's hard work, patience and understanding through this process.
