The European Society for Applied Superconductivity (ESAS) and the IEEE Council on Superconductivity (CSC) would like to announce that the Superconductivity News Forum (SNF) Editor-in-Chief position will pass from Alex Braginski to Horst Rogalla, as of the March 31st, 2016.
The societies gratefully thank Alex for pioneering the concept of the SNF, laying its strong foundation, and building it up to its recent expansion to cover most continents. CSC, ESAS, and the world superconductivity community are extremely thankful to Alex for his highly valued contributions and for teaching by example the importance and benefits of excellence and benevolent dedication in the service of science. Alex has kindly agreed to remain as Co-Editor of Electronics until a successor is found for that specific role. In future announcements Horst will be sharing his vision for the future of SNF, built upon the solid foundation that Alex laid out. In the meantime, the transition will occur in a manner that maintains the continuity of the forum.
