First of all, Thanks to the organizers and speakers as well as advisors of the program. My research area is theoretical nuclear structure physics, In which knowledge of groups, group theory, symmetries are required. This program re-energies me for more growth in future. I will also attend the programs in future in online mode.

The BIRS workshops have been regular events to look forward to over the years. Unlike the previous years when I was able to travel and attend the meeting physically, this year we had to make do with an online conference. Nevertheless, the meeting was rewarding and, apart from the actual programme, the opportunity to chat over zoom in designated rooms were useful. The timings were reasonably tweaked to enable participants from most parts of the world to attend - for me the event got over at 1 am at night which was certainly within the realms of possibility of participation. The BIRS events re-ignite collaborations which may have been dormant and keeps mathematicians from different countries in the loop. I would like these events to continue.
