Originally, we planned to host an international conference during February 2021 in Israel in his memory and honor. For obvious reasons, we were forced to postpone this plan. Instead, there will be a "hybrid" conference at Tel Aviv University, 24-25 October 2021, 3:30-8:45 pm. In addition to technical scientific contributions, there will be a memorial session.
