Participant Testimonials

Oct 03 - Oct 05, 2014

The workshop was excellent. A particular highlight was the three presentations from senior mathematicians: giving a research talk, university teaching and conducting research. Each of these presentations were insightful, interactive and intriguing. It was clear that the speakers genuinely wanted to provide honest and valuable advice. I appreciated their thoughtfulness. I also enjoyed the informal and candid atmosphere of the workshop, and meeting women mathematicians from across Canada, and learning from them.

The workshop was wonderful! It was great to meet so many female mathematicians from across Canada. The senior participants shared invaluable wisdom and advice and BIRS provided an excellent atmosphere. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to participate!

Our BIRS workshop was well-received, well-attended and extremely fruitful. From the feedback we received we have concluded that we must have frequent meetings of the same kind. BIRS was a fantastic site for us: all details of what a mathematician would need for a short workshop were thought of, and the manager was very helpful.
