In issue 1/2018 we published an obituary for Mr Sertaç Köksaldı, then a Turkish Council Member of the epi. We actually should have also published the following text written by Ms. Selda Arkan, another Turkish Council member of the epi:

”As the liaison member for the Turkish Group, I have the heavy burden to report, with deep sorrow, the passing away of our close friend and Council Member Sertac Köksaldı due to a sudden heart attack on January 18 last.

He was a source of strength and inspiration to everyone in our profession and he will always be remembered for his leadership and efforts because he devoted not only his time but also his heart to everything he was doing.

His loss will leave a great gap in the Turkish IP Community.“
