IV Skew Workshop

May 16th to May 19th, 2011


30.05.11 Thank You!

We would like to thank you all for your participation in the IV International Skew Workshop.

We thoroughly enjoyed the event and it was great to see and spend time with both well-known
and new faces in the Skew world. Above all we would like to thank all those who supported
the event financially, without whose support the Workshop would have been impossible. In
the same way we are grateful to all of you who travelled long distances to participate in the
Workshop and to the local participants who helped to make those from afar feel welcome.
The help that we received from our student staff and of course the secretarial support from
Rosy Godoy and María Soledad Alcaíno was indispensable.

We hope to see you at the next Skew event.

Kind regards,

Organising Committee
