This issue of the ICMI Bulletin is the last under my editorship. As indicated elsewhere in this Bulletin, a new Exceutive Committee of ICMI takes office as of the 1st January 1999. This implies that the position of Editor will assumed by the new Secretary of ICMI, Professor Bernard Hodgson, from that date. So, on future matters concerning the Bulletin, please contact
I should like to use this opportunity to thanking all contributors to this Bulletin during the eight years I have enjoyed the privilege of being its editor. I further want to thank Mrs. Inger Margrethe Christensen, at my department, who has been the Secretary of the Secretary of ICMI throughout my two terms and has been of invaluable assistance in several respects, including to the production and distribution of the Bulletin. I also want to thank my two sons, Henning and Martin, who have assisted me greatly in the technical preparation of the Bulletin over the years. Finally, my thanks go to my university and my department which have sponsored the printing and the posting of the Bulletin from the beginning to the end.
It is with great pleasure and comfort that I pass on the editorship to my successor Bernard Hodgson. It will be difficult to imagine a better editor. I wish him the very best of luck and pleasure in producing the ICMI Bulletin in the years to come.
