Participant Testimonials

Aug 17 - Aug 22, 2014

This is certainly one of the very the best conferences I have attended in a long time. Almost all talks were of very high quality and inspiring. There was a god combination of experimentalists, theoreticians and numerical people. On a personal level I came back home with several new ideas, and will probably keep in touch with several people I did not know before. We are actually thinking of putting together a follow-up in France in 2 years.

The BIRS workshop brought all the worlds experts together as well as good selection of up and coming researchers. There was a great mix of topics from the theoretical and modelling problems to the full complexity of the industrial setting. I greatly enjoyed the conference and believe many fruitful collaborations will result.
