I had a wonderful time in Banff. The BIRS workshop felt like a math retreat, everything around me was taken care of by the amazing staff so I could fully focus on the inspiring math and people. The fresh mountain air and beautiful scenery boosted my creativity even more. I am truly grateful for this outstanding opportunity.

This workshop provided a powerful, compelling, and judicious integration of complementary research perspectives on toric degenerations, a topic of great interest to many mathematicians. I learned about new and possibly fruitful research directions, and met several people with whom I might collaborate to pursue this research. I cannot think of a better standard by which to measure the success of a workshop.

I joined the meeting online, and I very much enjoyed the talks and the discussions. Thank you for providing an excellent environment and for arranging the online platform.
