What attendees had to say about the 2010 symposium:

"I wanted to thank you very much for inviting me to the First Biennial Symposium on AMD. Without a doubt, it was the best AMD meeting I have ever attended. I left there with a wealth of knowledge on the excellent research taking place in this area. Also, I was very pleased that you provided us with ample time for extended group discussions of the different contributions presented. The meeting was a major success thanks to your efforts and thoughtfulness".
