During the excursion for CONCUR 2007, while visiting the Arrábida Convent, we were hit by the sad news that our colleague and friend Nadia Busi had suddenly passed away the night before. A paper having Nadia as one of the authors had been presented at the conference just before we set off for the excursion.
Our community has lost a very active and creative researcher, a woman who could be an example for others to follow and, above all, a very kind human being.
An obituary for Nadia, written by Roberto Gorrieri, will appear in the October issue of the BEATCS. You can read it here.
"We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep."
(Shakespeare, "The Tempest")
