Participant Testimonials

Sep 22 - Sep 27, 2019

The workshop had many presentations of advanced models and methods and was very inspiring on many levels. I am motivated to advance some research ideas in the direction of the workshop and to direct some students work towards the area of the workshop.

This workshop resulted in valuable exchange of ideas on "Multistage Stochastic Optimization to Clean Energy Processes". I have worked on development and application of statistical methodologies to problems related to renewable energy. This has been done from a perspective of a developing country with examples from Nepal. Attending this conference and listening to the lecture from the experts from this field gave me fresh insights on new research projects. It also resulted in establishment of new contacts. It also gave me a idea on current research trends.

The environment at BIRS is conducive to carrying out collaborative research. The location is very pleasant and the opportunities for continual interaction over meals in addition to the excellent conference setup helps foster much more (innovative) research than a normal meeting.

This was a wonderful workshop - well organized, and with excellent talks on current topics from a variety of speakers. Particularly noteworthy was the mix of age groups, from very young to very senior researchers.
