Participant Testimonials

Aug 26 - Aug 31, 2018

I find these workshops very stimulating research-wise. Mini-courses presented at the workshop were well designed and well delivered. These courses gave me a broader view of the adjacent areas. I like the fact that this workshop is relatively small and focused. I had several discussions with participants. Some of them can lead to new research projects, collaboration, possibly a paper. Connections established during the workshop can potentially influence other aspects (such as jobs, hiring, etc.) in the long run.

I'm happy to provide a few details how the workshop has helped my research. On the one hand, it was the opportunity to exchange with fellow researchers I haven't seen a while, learning about interesting open problems and working together. On the other hand, I met a few people I did not know before. For example, it turned out that Sepideh Mirrahimi, another participant and lecturer of a minicourse, had done some work related to the thesis of a current PhD student of mine and we had a very valuable discussion about this. I'm very much looking forward to coming back to Banff!

This has been an exceptional opportunity to meet friends and collaborators from all over the world and to have passionating discussions with some potential new ones!
