I will be leaving the Marine Biology Research Group, to take up a position at the Royal Belgian Institute for Natural Sciences, from 1 November 2015 onwards. As the Marine Biology Research Group has a long standing tradition with NeMys, I decided that it would not be fair to take the editor-responsabilities with me to the new institute.
Katja Guilini (Marine Biology Research Group, Ghent University) will take over my tasks as chief editor, and main contact point with VLIZ. Katja has been involved in the UGent NeMys Task Force long before NeMys was integrated in WoRMS, and has a good knowledge on the history, use and importance of NeMys, and I am very confident that she will do a great job in the future.
It was a real pleasure to work with you, and I am very happy to see that many of you are very active in improving NeMys at regular times. This was indeed our aim, and thanks to your efforts NeMys is back in business, something I can witness from the almost daily requests to register.
I informed the WoRMS Data Management Team about my leave from UGent and NeMys, and they will do whatever is needed to give Katja full access to NeMys, and add her to this mailing list.
I do hope that we will meet again! We had a real good time in Oostende, and one day, we will talk/eat/drink again together!
All the best,
