I truly enjoyed the workshop. I had the opportunity to meet colleagues and discuss joint research with them, as well as meet new people in my community and learn about their research interests. I was also enriched by the workshop program which contained many good talks in diverse areas in computational complexity. This allowed me to learn the current state of the art in areas like hardness of approximation, constraint satisfaction problems, pseudorandomness, work in coding theory which relates to computational complexity and communication complexity.

I learned about recent developments in my field and near by areas. I started two new research projects one of them with a new collaborator. It did not affect my students nor my postdocs but it made me more familiar with the works of some junior researchers. I find the workshop very important as it brings top researchers as well as young ones together and give them the opportunity to deeply discuss new developments and embark on new projects. The Banff workshop (this is the 2nd time I'm participating in a complexity related meeting) is perhaps the best place in the world for discussing complexity theory!

The workshop was excellent! It was a long travel for me (I was coming from and returning to Europe) but I'm really happy I participated.
