Testimonials about the previous years:

“Useful and efficient. Feedback and discussion, both immediately after each DApresentation, and more informally over coffee, lunch and ‘au bar’, was generally very successful, and seemed to be particularly appreciated by many delegates. We plan to encourage this aspect in 2014 in every available way.”  Professor David Alexander, University of Birmingham
