„Through the great variety of inspiring and innovative topics and lectures and through bringing together scientists and users, synergies arise at the CMS as quickly and efficiently as hardly anywhere else. That‘s why the CMS creates a high added value (for me) every time and on many levels. I have already registered for the next time.”
