  1. Wow! This is going to be a very interesting workshop. The 2-day spectroscopy workshop will open new height of ideas not only to the professionals but also to students like me. Thank you for keeping the registration fee fit for a student budget.

  2. My best friend who is a science and technology geek/fanatic is so excited to attend this 2-day workshop! She can’t wait to tell me this, so she called me while she’s in the shower LOLZ He’s been waiting for this once in a lifetime event, I wonder how this will affect her afterwards.
