Co-authorship network has a long delay to in depth scientific discussion, thus we sent a survey to participants to build their network. Overall, we were very satisfied with how the meeting went.Every scientist loves talking about their work, so once you get them to sit down and to start talking to each other, they always have a great time.Our aim as event organisers is to provide an opportunity for single people to meet one another in a safe and relaxed environment.

How do you help your scientists make useful new connections and learn about potentially helpful new techniques? It’s much more fun to collect data on all of your conference delegates and use scientific clustering methods and network building algorithms to pair up the scientists in attendance based on their keenest interests.
