Dr. David Kilgour - for organizational and logistical help
Tzu-Yung (Terry) Lin - for taking on the role of conference photographer
My research group - for help in registration, organization, AV, etc,
Meng (Anna) Li
Katie Dingley and Fiona Friel for help with the conference programme.
David Josey for help with logistics
Samantha Hall and Sukhbinder Kaur for help with the invoicing and finances
Warwick Conferences (and especially our conference organizer Jane Gray and our on-site helpers Erika and Alex)
Warwick Castle and their wonderful staff
The sponsors (Bruker, Thermo, Advion, Leco, Waters, RSC, and Expedeon) whose financial assistance greatly facilitated the meeting.
And of course, the delegates for making the conference exciting and driving the scientific discourse.
Thank you all,
