It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing away of Ahmad El Soufi, on 29th December, at Tours in France. Professor at the Univesity François-Rabelais at Tours, Ahmad El Soufi was a major actor of CIMPA for many years, especially through his activities in Africa and the Middle East. All those who had the pleasure of knowing him will treasure the memory of a very cultivated man, full of humanity, of tremendous kindness and of a contagious joie de vivre.
