Participant Testimonials

Nov 27 - Dec 02, 2016

The workshop was a fantastic experience. The setting is enough to enthuse all participants. I met my collaborators from all around the world, and generated some new prospects for collaboration as well. The facilities at BIRS are one of the best! I also need to mention the amazing views and opportunities to explore the outdoors after and in-between the workshop. Overall, it was a very enriching experience. Thank you, BIRS!

This is one of the best uses of funding for research! It is a unique proposition to gather so many experts (and budding researchers) in the same place, without distraction, for an extended period of time.
