Imre Simon boundless energy and enthusiasm enlightened his colleagues and students, many of them present at his funerals last Sunday. He always strengthened the importance of research as a driving force to elevate quality standards in higher education and to induce innovative IT initiatives. A genuine internationalist for whom geographical boundaries meant little, Imre always saw education as a mean for fostering societal development and improve world understanding. USP and many others Brazilian universities will deeply miss his talent, dedication and creativity. Jacques
