Praise for our last online conference 'Breaking Down Barriers' 19-29 October 2009:

What a brilliant idea! Conferences are so expensive, so it was wonderful to be able to go to an 'extra' one
after I'd already used up my conference funds for the year...
E. Katzman, University of Essex, UK

This was a great opportunity to see scholars interact with ideas and research outside their disciplines!
R. Harris

The papers were informative and extremely well presented
L Costello, Ireland

Provocative, insightful and challenging. The Keynotes were also excellent.
B. Choudhuri, Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Canada

I think the virtual framework was an excellent way for international / multinational students to share their work and attend.
V. Nesfield, York St John University, UK

I found the exchanges enlightening, especially how some of the paper authors responded so thoughtfully to their commentators.
M. Schoenfeld, Vanderbilt University, USA

The publishing workshops were full of helpful information, practical advice that I can apply soon.
J. Anstey, Rochester University, USA
