    The Association's Annual Meeting 2016 concluded yesterday. C. 75 delegates, including the speakers participated in the lunch-to-lunch meeting at Sinatur Hotel Storebælt with a spectacular view of the Great Belt Bridge and the beach from the conference venue.

    The program is available on the 2016 Annual Meeting web page, where you can read about, and download, the presentations. The new session type Hot Topic Roundtable Discussion was tested and if you participated, but did not get some important comments or suggestions into the discussion, or if you have comments on other discussion topics than the one you participated in, or if you did not participate in the conference, but wish you had, discussion fora for each of the topics have been created:

    1. Benchmarking of research management and administration
    2. Communication in research advise
    3. Organising research support
    4. DARMA Strategy
    I and the board would love to see many comments and suggestions on these topics!
