There were over 100 attendees at the symposium, ensuring a lot of lively discussion in the breaks and poster sessions. We would also like to congratulate the two winners of the poster prizes: 1st place Stephen Argent (Nottingham), and second place Ming Liu (Liverpool). With the growing level of interest in this field we hope to see a second event in the future.
