The objective of the Wide-field InfraRed Surveys: Science and Techniques conference is for scientists to report on recent findings from NASA missions (especially Spitzer, Kepler, Hubble, and WISE) as they affect the design of the next generation of space-based infrared surveys, including the proposed AFTA/WFIRST mission. The conference will also expose the participants to the capabilities of that mission as currently envisaged by the Science Definition Team and the Project Formulation Team.  The conference will also assess the design in the context of ant icipated performance of JWST and other planned missions such as TESS or Euclid, as well as ground-based projects.  Because of the wide range of topics, from Dark Energy to Exoplanets, and the increasing importance of additional community-driven observational programs, this will be a unique opportunity to bring together these many constituencies to present their perspectives and inform the trade studies pursued by the Science Definition Team and the Project Formulation Team.
