BIRS is the great place to talk to people and discuss mathematics. During last workshop I talked a lot with Philippe Gille (Lyon, France) on the connection of central simple algebras of degree 5 and groups of type E_8. At the end we decided to start a new joint project about this topic and we hope very much that our collaboration will be productive.

Lectures and discussions with colleagues were very helpful and will eventually influence on my current research projects.
