September 30 – October 2, 2015
Hyatt Regency Tamaya
Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico
More than 30 registered attendees from 9 countries participated in the Inaugural Barracuda Virtual Reactor Users' Conference near Albuquerque, NM. Thank you to all the participants and speakers alike for making the conference a huge success. Here's what you had to say:
"Great initiative. Gave the users a chance to interact with both the CPFD staff and other users."
"Nice to be somewhat isolated with no distractions."
"Well done! Happy to meet you all and some other users. [I received] lots of valuable inputs. We definitely expect to be improving our procedures and predictions."
"It has been by far the most useful conference I've attended. Great Job!"
100% of post-conference survey respondents said they would be interested in attending a future conference and would recommend the conference to others.
