Gamal B. Excellent meeting with lots of topical subjects comprehensively covered over 4 days. The robotics section was sublime. I have learnt a lot. The original program sent by email did not mention anything about the excellent social program. It would be advisable to inform candidates in the future about the social events. I have made some social arrangements as I was unaware about that aspect of the meeting. All in all excellent educational value and wonderful place to hold the meeting in (despite the rain ha ha)
