A quote of John Benemann, one of the attendees:
"Now a special thanks and congratulations for a great conference! As you know, I am a frequent conferencee, so can judge comparatively, and this was indeed quite a superior meeting. As a attendee wanting to learn about the field, the latest in commercial developments and technology state-of-the-art, I could not have done better - informative, comprehensive and topical. Excellent presentations and speakers. Great networking, just the right size meeting for getting to know people. And superb food - I am recommending the chefs for other algae meetings! - and entertainment. OK, I think I covered it all, except for the nice video !
You now have a major challenge: how to make Lisbon even better! OK, if you can just come close to this one, that would be fantastic."
