Firstly to say thanks again (both personally and on behalf of the Society) for organising such a successful meeting in Croatia; from my point of view it all went very smoothly, although I know from experience there must have been some panics! But thanks for all the hard work from you and your very professional team it will be a very hard act to follow. We look forward to working with you and it was nice to meet you in Dubrovnik.

Bi sakal da ti se zablagodaram za sve sto napravi vo Dubrovnik. Moram da priznaam deka IDS vo Dubrovnik bese najdobro organiziran IDS od site na koi sum ucestvuval (4 IDS). Primi gi moite iskreni cestitki za organizacija na IDS. Se nadevam deka ce ostaneme vo kontakt.

What an absolutely wonderful time I had in Croatia! You organized the best conference that I have ever attended. Dubrovnik is of course an outstanding setting, but the work you and your team did in putting the conference together certainly paid off. I want you to know that I was most impressed with the two dinners we had in Dubrovnik. And man did my wife and I have fun dancing at the Gradska Kavana!! I want you to know that my wife and I had a great week driving the Dalmatian coast following the conference. We really enjoyed Korcula, and getting to see Dubrovnik more.
