Participant Testimonials

May 07 - May 12, 2017

The workshop was very useful on several fronts. I very much hope to pursue some of the research directions I learned about at the workshop! I certainly learned a lot of things and got many new ideas for projects and directions.

My current research is in a field parallel to, although not directly related to, toric geometry. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to attend this workshop. From the talks of the participants, many of whom leaders in the field, I got a clear perspective of the subject's scope and methodology. It was indeed a pleasure to listen to geometers coming from outside one's own discipline.
