The conference was a great success, with lots of nice talks, entertaining introductions by hosts, great poster presentations and fruitful workshops, as well as plenty of time for networking! More than 200 researchers from the U.S., Germany, The Netherlands and many other countries participated. Great job of the organizers Nicole van Dam and Spencer Behmer!

To overcome the jet lag, we went for a walk on Ventura harbor and beach with Luis, Georgios and others from WUR/FU.

The Gordon team found a nice venue for the conference. The food and facilities were excellent Only the poster room was too noisy.
