Claudine Doury on ISSP (2 September 2011):
ISSP is unique, its not surprising that participants apply from all over the world. One week of non-stop creativity in the middle of the forest. All made possible because of the incredible energy of the ISSP team. Special thanks to my students, it was an amazingly talented and lovely group.
