It is with great sadness that we learned about the passing of our dear Professor Rolf T. Wigand, esteemed colleague and dear friend, one of the founding members of the Bled eConference community.

We will always remember Rolf as a truly inspiring professor, colleague, and above all as a great man whose words would always encourage everyone around him to give and achieve their best. We will truly miss our dear friend Rolf. Our thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife Dianne Lux Wigand, also a member of the Bled eConference community.
