Do debris disks always contain planets? Can we infer the properties of these planets from the morphologies of these disks? How do planets affect T Tauri, Herbig Ae, and transitional disks? Are patterns in exozodiacal clouds friend or foe for direct imaging of exoEarths?

This conference will bring together observers, modelers, and instrument builders to take on all these questions. Bring your prettiest images and simulations; let's compare them.
