This is not only my first time attending IUI, but also my first time serving as a student volunteer at a conference. The whole experience is way beyond my imagination. I enjoyed the whole time there in the beautiful Sonoma—not bothered by the rain at all! One thing I liked most about IUI is the small conference atmosphere that everyone felt close to each other. It was such a diverse conference and I was excited finding people doing all kinds of interesting research in this field. Everyday at the conference I got the chance to meet new friends and learnt something new from them–most of us kept in touch after the conference ended. All these are unforgettable experiences and memories that I will treasure for a long time.
