This is what some of the participants had to say about the meeting in Utrecht:
"Great to get an overview of the current state of affairs with respect to ‘measuring behavior’ in two days." --- Hans Jansen, Organon, Oss, The Netherlands.
"The workshop was fine and I think with the focus on methods it fills a hole in the agenda of international meetings. It was very well organized and a high quality of contributions was obtained. Best wishes!" --- Jens Kerl, University of Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany.
"Everything was very useful and enjoyable, an excellent way to make new contacts and learn about new technology relevant to my field of research. All staff were very friendly and approachable. Well done!" --- Antonita Harper, Keele University, Keele, UK.
"Results and conclusions were presented as illustrations of the method instead of the study goal. Good concept! The meeting is a very good initiative and I hope this type of opportunity will come back." --- Sophie Willemsen-Swinkels, Utrecht Academic Hospital, Utrecht, The Netherlands.
"The mixture of scientific and commercial presentations was optimally balanced. The organization in total was super!" --- Frauke Ohl, German Primate Center, Göttingen, Germany.
"Definitely one of the best (and best organized) meetings during the last 25 years. Thanks to the organizing committee." --- Michel Picard, INRA, Nouzilly, France.
"What I liked best? Meeting people I do not normally meet since they are in different disciplines yet we all have a shared interest." --- Cobie Brinkman, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.
"I would like to congratulate the organizers, it was a really successful meeting. I mostly liked that it was really a user meeting with the main interest on methods and not scientific results." --- Ullrich Schmitt, University of Mainz, Mainz, Germany.
"I think it was super organized and very enjoyable. It was really good to have people with a very wide range of interest from so many countries." --- Claire Weeks, University of Bristol, Langford, UK.
"The lectures were very good and I liked the demonstrations of the programs very much. Also the scientific tours were very interesting." --- Marja van Kampen, German Primate Center, Göttingen, Germany.
"I consider the demonstrations an excellent possibility to become acquainted with new methods and developments." --- Melly Oitzl, University of Leiden, Leiden, The Netherlands.
"This workshop offered a concentration of problems/solutions that I have looked for in other meetings." --- Kristina Angeby-Möller, Astra Pain Control, Huddinge, Sweden.
"I enjoyed the possibility of demonstration and training with several systems, and the opportunity for discussions with users." --- Alain Boissy, INRA, St-Genčs-Champanelle, France.
"What I liked best were the demonstration and training opportunities, and meeting product designers and users. Compliments for that!" --- Katharina Hirschenhauser, Konrad Lorenz Research Station for Ethology, Grünau, Austria.
