Farewell Francisco Beja
and thank you...
IDEA notes, with sadness, the death of Francisco Béja, Portugal. Francisco was integral to the inaugural congress in Oporto, Portugal in July 1992. Everywhere you looked in the Rivoli Theatre in that hot July, he was there. Organising, supporting, answering questions, taking care of us all.
