Participant Testimonials

Sep 15 - Sep 20, 2013

The conference gave me a much better insight to my field. As a young graduate student I feel that I greatly benefited from following the talks and speaking with other participants. I made new friends and strengthened old relationships. These contacts may well lead to collaboration some day or help getting employed, but have not done so yet. The practical arrangements were excellent and I enjoyed my stay greatly.

It's been a pleasure organizing this workshop at BIRS. This is my first visit as a participant and as a organizer and I have to say that I was very impressed with the Research Station. The staff were really helpful (during the past two years) and the facilities were excellent. We have the feeling that the workshop went well and there was a good balance between talks and time for discussions, but we'll get a better feeling once we write out our report. Many thanks for the support, centers like this are invaluable for the profession.
