Uppsala July 8, 2011

This time of the year, we experience lots of light in Sweden. The evenings are long, the nights are short, and the morning light arrives early. Many of us take a well-earned Summer vacation during July and/or August to enjoy the light and return refreshed to teaching and research in Fall. In fact, that is what I do with my family.

Between ICPRs the Executive Committee has one physical meeting. We will meet on August 8-9 at Past-President Professor Brian Lovell’s lab in Brisbane, Australia. On our agenda is to check the status of the Standing and Technical Committees by reading interim reports that the respective Chairs have sent us and review the financial situation (e.g., by checking the membership dues). We will also discuss the scholarship program proposed at the Governing Board meeting in Istanbul last year. Of course, progress of the upcoming ICPR in Tsukuba is also on the agenda. Hence, we will have a busy two-day meeting in order to cover all the items.

This edition of the Newsletter contains, among other topics, three calls for nomination: the prestigious King-Sun Fu Prize, which is seen as the Nobel Prize of our field; the J.K. Aggarwal Prize, which is intended for young scientists; the IAPR Fellow Award, which is for scientists with distinguished contribution to our field and to IAPR.

Please, visit the IAPR webpage regularly. Thanks to the IAPR webmaster Edward Sobczak, who updates our website continuously.
