Participant Testimonials

Jul 05 - Jul 10, 2015

The environment was inspiring and I made some progress with a problem I am working on. I had some discussions with other attendees which increased my understanding of my research area (Quantum Shannon Theory). I also found out about some possible job opportunities.

I had a very pleasant workshop week with lots of inspiring talks.

The Beyond IID workshop in Banff was great to enhance my research. I formed new contacts and have new research projects under way related to the theme of the workshop. I expect these to lead to new research papers eventually.

I enjoyed myself immensely at this workshop, which perhaps is not the most appropriate thing to say for an event of which I was one of the principal organizers, but everything went so smooth, the staff were so helpful, that it seemed almost effortless to arrange the scientific programme and organize the speakers. I would do it again, anytime!
