Participant Testimonials

Aug 19 - Aug 24, 2018

The workshop was wonderful. Many new interesting problems were posed, and lots of very interesting research was presented. The hiking in the scenic setting was icing on the cake.

The Navier Stokes workshop at BIRS was extremely well organized, with a lot of interesting talks. It definitely helped my research program significantly. I was able to talk to a number of researchers about refining regularity criteria for the Navier Stokes equations. I was also able to talk to someone who had been tackling a problem I had been thinking about analytically from the numerical angle, which provided some fresh insights. I can say that I also made a number of contacts that will be useful as I apply for postdocs this fall, so BIRS is a very valuable asset for young researchers trying to establish connections with more people in their field. Thank you for all the work that you do for BIRS.

First of all, I would like to thank you and BIRS for offering such a wonderful facility for the workshop that my colleagues and I organized. Organizing and participating in the workshop in such a beautiful environment is really an enjoyment. Our workshop was really stimulating and all of our participants expressed satisfaction and appreciation. The staff members were really helpful and the food was great. We would like to do a workshop again in the future at BIRS.

My participation in the BIRS workshop absolutely had great impact on my current research. I was able to meet and discuss with mathematicians from all over the world, whose work I have read so much, and we could not have gathered so many great mathematicians from countries so far away if it weren't for the environment and accommodations provided by BIRS. As far as I know, every participant in our workshop was fully satisfied with the events that took place.
