Participant Testimonials

Feb 18 - Feb 23, 2018

The workshop was an extremely stimulating and refreshing experience, which has brought to my attention results from groups or topics that I was not aware of. It has been fantastic, in the midst of a hectic semester with much teaching and administrative duties, to benefit from one week of excellent presentations, with much time for fruitful discussions and interactions, in this beautiful and serene location. It has been an opportunity to meet new people, open up to other approaches and problems, and catch up on more familiar topics. It has allowed me to take a step back and reflect on fundamental issues, which easily slip out of sight otherwise. I am thankful in several ways for this workshop, which has fueled my research for months to come.

The workshop brought together a number of researchers working in fields closely related to my research. Listening to the talks and interacting with colleagues helped me to redefine some of the main points of a project that I am currently working on. The workshop also gave me occasion to interact with various people who I knew in name, but not in person.
