Participant Testimonials

Apr 28 - May 03, 2019

This was certainly one of my favourite workshops. The size of the workshop and the excellent professional working environment and support made it possible, as participants, to get to know each other, have intense scientific discussions and get inspiration for new ideas.

I thought this recent workshop at CMO was among the better ones I have been to in recent years. I found the discussions about contentious issues to be constructive and informative, and I came away with several new things to think about. It was also very well organized, both scientifically and logistically. It was the kind of meeting with which your institutions should be proud to be associated.

The workshop has been very nice and fruitful. I particularly enjoyed the relaxed schedule which allowed for a lot of time for informal discussions. The invited speakers were also world leaders in their field of research and the venue is fantastic.

My participation did impact my research, I learned a lot from the talks and from the discussions with other people. It was very good to have a relaxed schedule of talks with plenty of time to discuss. I also met new poeple and it seems possible to start a new collaboration from the workshop.

By fostering discussions with my colleagues, the workshop opened new collaboration prospects and helped me to get to better know my scientific community.
