Participant Testimonials

Oct 21 - Oct 26, 2018

BIRS workshop has helped me to fix an agenda for my research in the next months to follow and has reinforced my opportunities for future collaborations. The openness from the participants as well as the great accommodation given by the organizers raised the bar too high on how successful and enjoyable can a workshop be.

My participation helped me connect with a few researchers that I haven't worked with before. We started work on two topics that I hope will lead to publications.

Therese Biedl Computer Science, University of Waterloo

During the week, we have completely solved a difficult problem that I would not believe we can make any significant progress in it. Great!

Petr Hlineny Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University

This was an excellent venue to report on one's work and to keep informed about the state of the art on crossing numbers. In addition, in smaller groups, the participants addressed some key problems in the field, and made significant progress on them.
