It’s the gold standard of what a conference
should be and the fact that a conference
of this sort of level of excellence should be
in my field adds something special.
This conference is quite at the cutting edge,
cutting edge of things such as technology,
about online, which is the current big buzz word.
No matter what your area of interest
you will find some kindred souls
and there are lots of opportunities for
cross-pollination of ideas.
Being able to present research and get feedback from
individuals from a variety of perspectives
is very important in this field and so it’s really
enabled me to develop my career.
I get my knowledge of gambling updated,
but what I really like about it is that
there’s a continuity.
There are certain things that are
stable and each time you learn a lot.
This is clearly the most heavily endorsed
research conference internationally.
For those of us who work in the gambling field,
this is the most prestigious conference.
This is the place you have to be every three years.
This is the place that makes the
field what it is.
