I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the recent BICA meeting in Lyon.
I had no particular expectations beforehand, and would not have been surprised if I found it an uninspiring hodgepodge. But to my delight, it was very exciting, a wonderful mix of neuro and computational, with people of a far higher caliber than I anticipated. All this kept me not only interested but on my toes and challenged! Just what a conference should be.
On top of that, Lyon was a wonderful choice of venue, as were the boat-cruise dinner and the reception the evening before.
Thanks for doing such a terrific job!
