It is with great sadness that the IGSN has learned of the passing, on December 1st, of Rolf Würtz, of the Institute for Neural Computation.
Rolf Würtz was a faculty member and PhD advisor of the IGSN since its foundation in 2001. He was a member of the PhD committee and Studies Commission of the IGSN from 2012 onwards. During this time he was instrumental in helping the IGSN guide and foster the careers of very many young neuroscientists.
His kindness and positivity, his energy and talent as a computational neuroscientist and his constant support of the IGSN is something that was treasured by all of us that interacted with him, and will not be forgotten.
The IGSN extends its deepest sympathy to his family and to all who shall miss his presence.
May he rest in peace.
