I enjoyed the overview on day 1 and then getting a better understanding of what DTRA funds by attending sessions.
Great keynote speakers that were really engaging and imparted excitement for future research.
The ability to bring in a large number of people focused on similar topics to allow them to interact and foster discussions and possible collaborations.
The venue was excellent, atmosphere was great.
Learning about ongoing research and meeting colleagues conducting the work. This allows for a much better understanding of the intricacies of the work than reading a paper.
This was the best conference (discussions, contacts made, smooth running, etc) I have ever attended in 30 years in uniform.
