    I loved collaborating with all of the different organisations in the set up for the conference and could never have predicted the amazing quality of talks that everyone presented. This conference was like no other in the interaction between all of the different organisations. The conference pages are super easy to coordinate, even post conference, and there is such an incredible variety in the talks that were presented. SO excited to hopefully help coordinate another one next year!
