It is both an honor and a pleasure to be associated with ICIMSS. The energy and vision of Maria Sliwinska and the Rector at Nicholas Copenicus University have provided the strong foundation on which this truly international effort can thrive. The dedication and enthusiasm of our first students and faculty are infectious. I eagerly look forward to our coming year.
