My participation at the BIRS workshop had an important impact in my current research, as I was able to interact with leading experts in my areas of interest and develop new ideas and insights. The setting that BIRS offers was also very important for this interaction to be at its best.

The workshop at BIRS gave me an overview of the state of the art and a new insight of the theory. I've been inspired by new ideas in my own research. And met many interesting people.

In this conference, I met mostly mathematicians that I had not met before and listened to mathematics studying the same objects (Lie groupoids) but with quite different questions. From this point of view, it was a real opening for me. I exchanged particularly with a few mathematicians and discussed of possible future collaborations.
