Participant Testimonials

Apr 24 - Apr 29, 2016

An extremely productive week in a very friendly and special environment. Thank you Maria, Kristine, Kathryn and Brenda for making this workshop possible. It certainly had a very positive impact on my research and motivation level.

Joana Cirici Mathematics, Freie Universität Berlin

I truly enjoyed my week in Banff. As this was the Women in Topology II program, we have been working on projects in groups, and this week was very productive for my team. The workshop provided a great opportunity to meet people in the community, work and discuss in a relaxed environment, and form new collaborations. Thanks to the organizers for making this happen!

The week at BIRS for WIT2 was the most productive week I've had in a long time!

Vesna Stojanoska University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

I had an excellent week. In a group of new collaborators we were able to completely outline the proof of a rather nice theorem, one I had been hoping to prove for a while.

Ulrike Tillmann Mathematics, Oxford University

I very much enjoyed this workshop. Our team had a productive week, making good progress on various aspects of our project. The workshop also provided an excellent opportunity to meet women in topology.
