New officers elected!

I am pleased to be able to announce the results of the recently concluded election for officers of IFIP Working Group 8.2.

For chair: Ulrike Schultze (US)

For vice-chair: Eija Karsten (FI)

For secretary, we have an unanticipated outcome: a tie between our two candidates. After discussion amongst the current officers and the two candidates, we have jointly concluded that the best way to honour the vote from the membership is to have both candidates serve as secretary.

For secretary: Catherine Middleton (CA) and Matthew Jones (UK)
