The SQAMIA 2023 Workshop will be the 10th workshop in the series of workshops on Software Quality Analysis, Monitoring, Improvement, and Applications. It is taking place in Bratislava, Slovakia from 10th to 13th September 2023.
With deep sadness we inform you that our dear colleague prof. Zoran Budimac passed away at the end of August. He was initiator and together with other several colleagues he was a founder of SQAMIA workshop series. Unfortunately, he would not be with us at this anniversary 10th edition of SQAMIA.
He had not so serious surgery intervention in the mid of June. However, after several weeks, partially as a consequence of bad post-operational physicians’ procedures, serious form of sepsis appeared and almost two months after that unfortunately he passed away.
We will try to continue with SQAMIA WSs in the future dedicated to the memory of Prof. Zoran Budimac.
