I should like to repeat/reiterate my thanks and deep appreciation to you personally and to the members of the Organizing Committee for the effort you have made to ensure the success of the conference.
On arriving home, I wish to express to you my sincere gratitude for having organized the Conference in such a wonderful and efficient manner. You and your committee deserve great credit for the tremendous effort you put into planning the Conference.
Now that I have returned home, I want to thank you once more for the magnificent job you did as Chairman of the local Organizing Committee. Equally impressive was the great effort your colleagues on the Committee made to ensure the success of the Conference.
The meeting achieved very well its primary purpose to permit the scientists of many countries to meet each other and discuss their work on common problems in an atmosphere appropriate both to scholarship and fellowships. The local arrangements and the atmosphere which they helped to create contributed greatly to the success of the Conference, which represents, in my opinion, a further significant contribution to the establishment of good will and cooperation among the scientists of the world.
It gives me great pleasure to note that not only did the scientific sessions proceed at a high level, but the social aspects were very pleasant too. We all enjoyed visiting R. University and looking around the laboratories.
All the scientific sessions were well run and extremely interesting. It was both a pleasure and a great honor to have this opportunity to discuss many problems of mutual interest. I feel that an outstanding achievement of the Conference was that many new contacts were made between people interested in different problems.
