Helmut Veith 1971-2016

helmutveith_whitebackground_resize_frameIt is with the deepest sadness that we announce Helmut Veith’s passing on March 12, 2016. Helmut was a brilliant researcher, an inspiring collaborator, a stimulating teacher, a generous friend, and a wonderful father and husband. He leaves a void that will be impossible to fill. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
