We would like to thank all the sponsors and attendees for making AIMS.2012 a success! Thanks also to everyone who turned in a survey sheet - even though some people had to leave before Thurs. afternoon, we still got a ~60% return! Your comments will guide us as we prepare for future AIMS courses.
AIMS.2012 was attended by a variety of people, both geographically and by laboratory type. In the US, 23 states were represented, along with attendees from Australia, Canada, Germany, and Italy. Roughly 60% of attendees were from academic institutions, 30% from industry, and 10% from government laboratories. See the graph below for more information.
