ISSI Festschrift series

The ISSI Festschrift Series (ISSN 1998-5460) are to supplement the ISSI Newsletter and appear as its special volumes. The festschrift series was launched in 2007. This series aims to honor prominent members of our community on the occasion of milestone birthdays, retirement, or other commemorable events. Unlike the newsletter, festschrifts are organised by guest editors.
