It is with great sadness that I announce the premature passing of a valued colleague and friend Chris Savage. Chris is responsible for the design of both hpGEM and MercuryDPM websites, and has hosted both web and svn servers for MercuryDPM for the last six months.
Chris was a valuable member of both the MercuryDPM and hpGEM teams and was leading a project to develop browser based tools for MercuryDPM. Chris also joined the hpGEM team last February for part of the intensive workshop and it was planned that he would join the MercuryDPM team next month for a similar workshop.
He was a joy to work with and will be missed by all that knew him.
