The Executive Board of EURALEX is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our good friend and dedicated colleague, Paul Bogaards, at his home in the Netherlands on October 3, 2012. Paul was editor of the International Journal of Lexicography from 2002 to 2012 and an ex-officio member of the EURALEX Executive Board during that time. Paul’s contributions to EURALEX were many, and he continued to work on IJL right up until his illness prevented him from doing so. Paul will be sorely missed by the EURALEX community, and we take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathy to his widow Ingrid and to the rest of his family.
An obituary for Paul will appear in the next issue of the EURALEX Newsletter, and we are working with Oxford University Press to set up a memoriam on the IJL webpage. Further information will be posted here. In the interim, Anne Dykstra will be Acting Editor of the journal.
Janet DeCesaris, President, EURALEX (2012-2014), for the Executive Board
