Participant Testimonials

May 23 - May 28, 2010

The discussions at BIRS workshop was very stimulating. I could get to know many important people in the field, and I could introduce our recent results to these people. I was contacted by many people for discussions and possible collaborations. For example, I discussed with Prof. A. Zvelindovsky, with whom I collaborated during the past few years, on further collaborations which reflect the discussions at BIRS workshop. I also discussed with Prof. Z.Y. Sun and Prof. Z.G.Wang for a possible collaborations. I will invite Prof. Sun's student to our lab for a few months for collaboration.

This combination of physics and mathematics has been a great experience. Since the focus of the workshop was very concentrated, this has been one of the most effective meetings that I have attended. The organizers assembled a impressive crowd and I have made several new contacts. Moreover, I intend to write a proposal with one of the participants, which I have met in person for the first time during the meeting.
