Stephen Fienberg (1942-2016)
I am very very sad to have to announce that our dear friend Steve Fienberg passed away last night, after a long and admirable battle against cancer. He was a wonderful person, a brilliant statistician, a deep thinker, and a fantastic mentor to so many of us. He has strongly impacted the field of Statistics over his prolific career and continued to do so till the last day. It is just so hard to realise he is no longer with us. But his contagious laughter will continue to resonate in our memories, while his vision of Statistics will keep driving us. Au revoir, Steve, et merci.
