It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Prof. A.R. Yavari on Nov. 24th, 2015. He will forever remain in our memories not only as one of ISMANAM’s distinguished founders, a long-standing Chairman of the Steering Committee, and a leading light in the development of science, but, above all, as a kind and generous soul to everyone. The organizers express their sincere condolences to his family, his friends and all those who knew him.
A Memorial Session will be delivered in his name at the ISMANAM 2016 Symposium.
