“This symposium [2011] was the best yet with high energy presenters, great topics, terrific meals and delicious snacks, sufficient breaks along with a little wine and song. Everything seemed to flow flawlessly.”

“I want to again express my congratulations to you on an outstanding symposium this year. The topics covered were interesting and relevant. The mix of students, chemical producers and others presenting the papers was about right. I was also pleased to hear at the Technical Advisory Committee meeting about all the activities that are on-going in LNG and other research and undergraduate programs both here in the US and abroad.”

“It was a pleasure to attend the 2010 symposium, from which we got much useful information. Your symposium is one of the largest events in process safety and material safety. I would encourage Japanese researchers to attend it.”
