We hope you had a worthwhile experience and the opportunity to share research, exchange ideas, expand your networks, and meet up with some old friends (and hopefully make some new ones too).
We would like to extend a special thanks to all the sponsors, exhibitors, members of the Local Organinzing Committee, and the student volunteers for their efforts to make this Congress a success.
