    Rawan Ghazzawi, Tilburg University

  • “I especially liked to on-campus accommodation. This was different to the hotels where I was at other previous conferences. Warwick University offers a wide range of activities that I enjoyed very much, besides the conference on its own. It was convenient to be living close to the conference venues, on campus. Wifi was perfect, access to supermarkets, sports centre all perfect, and the conference venues, conference rooms were modern. I liked the PDWs and the discussions, the possibility to discuss my newest papers with specialists, in small groups. All in all, it was a very useful, successful conference, allowing for great professional discussions in small and bigger groups, meeting with old and new participants, and there was enough time for networking. The conference Gala Dinner was fantastic, in Coventry Cathedral, food was great, I only missed the dance. Next year we should have the opportunity to dance again, like in previous years”
    Dr Ursula Schinzel, Luxembourg
