MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear ISBIS Colleagues and Friends:
It is a pleasure to say a big hello to all of you! It was wonderful to see many of you at the ISI-WSC 2017 in Marrakech, meet old ISI and ISBIS friends and make new ones. I hope we will have more opportunities to meet up in the coming months.
We had a change of guard at our ISBIS General Assembly at the WSC in Marrakech. On behalf of all of us, I express my deepest gratitude to the outgoing ISBIS Executive Committee – David Banks, Roger Hoerl, Kristina Lurz, Pilar Muñoz, and Kwok Tsui, and to the outgoing Council members – Oliver Chinganya, Luis Escobar, Irena Ograjenšek, and Galit Shmueli. Special thanks to David for his excellent leadership and to the whole Exec and
Council for all the work they have put into moving ISBIS forward into the age of Big Data and Data Science – a big thank you!
