The initial feedback from conference delegates has been highly positive. We would like to sincerely thank the organising committee, Drs. Ruth Morales and Ian Jenkins, in addition to those who offered administrative and logistical support from the Bulle and Glion campuses. Above all, we would like to recognise the hard work of the students who volunteered. They illustrated the excellence of our institutions and impressed conference participants through their helpfulness, professionalism and initiative. We are all very proud of them.
