    In all modesty I seem to recall that ISOLDE II was organized by Peter Pruzan and myself. It is likely that also Richard M. Soland, The George Washington Univ., Washinton D.C. should be credited as member of the organizing team.
    A tragic event occurred in conjunction with ISOLDE II, the untimely death of Jonathan P. Halpern. An obituary can be found in J. Krarup, P.M. Pruzan, “Jonathan Halpern (1940-1981)”, EJOR 12 (1983) 1-2.
    Otherwise only fond memories from a series of truly golden days are left with me.
