Dear Uddevalla Symposia Network Friends,
It is with deep sorrow that the Organization Committee of the Uddevalla Symposia announces that Roger R. Stough, George Mason University, USA – one of the Fathers of the Founders of The Uddevalla Symposia – has passed away on September 6, 2019.
He was one of the leading persons through the history of the Uddevalla Symposium and served as a member of the Scientific Committee since the start in 1998 and a member of the Organizing Committee for several years. Dr. Stough was active in creating and developing the symposia in several ways; e.g. contributing as chair for pre-symposia consisting of both practitioners and academics, organizing special sessions within The Regional Science Association (TRSA) one at the 22nd Uddevalla Symposium this June in Italy 2019 and in spreading knowledge through publishing processes.
We will remember him as a very enthusiastic, generous, diplomatic and wise man, always willing to listen and give good advises to both young scholars, to senior scientists as well as to administrative colleagues.
Although we are very happy to have had the opportunity to cooperate and work together with him for more than two decades we shall miss him greatly. Today, our thoughts goes to his family.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
