In Memoriam: Alfredo Petrosino

On behalf of the IAPR Executive Committee and the IAPR community as a whole, I’d like to express our heartfelt sympathy to Alfredo’s family and friends. Their loss is also felt deeply by his colleagues at the Parthenope University, the CVPL (the Italian IAPR Member Society of which he was Vice-President), and the members of IAPR societies worldwide with whom he had been actively collaborating.

Alfredo made valuable contributions to the ethos and goals of the IAPR by passionately promoting best practices in Pattern Recognition research, particularly in his excellent work with training the next generations of researchers.

Sincere condolences,

Apostolos Antonacopoulos, IAPR President
