What people think of ATDLE

I enjoyed the ATDLE conference last year in San Diego and was very impressed with the way you had organized it. Thank you for such a good event, you worked very hard to make everything perfect. I go to at least 4 Conferences every year and many you
forget but I’ll always remember my professional ATDLE experience. I just registered for Sacramento 2014! I’m taking my teachers with me!

Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful and successful TWBI conference. The quality of the speakers and papers were excellent, the sponsored lunches and dinner events provided outstanding food and atmosphere for conference members to interact and to get to know each other. I’m going this year to Sacramento!

The hotel accommodations were world class. Professionally, I met some wonderful people who will now be colleagues and perhaps friends for life. I may also be initiating research with some of my new-found colleagues. It was a pleasure to be at the ATDLE conference. I enjoyed interacting with all of you as well as the other participants. Overall, I had a great time and so when you do this next, please do let us know.
