On the afternoon of Thursday 9th September a special session of talks will be held at the Spanish Relativity Meeting (ERE2010) to honour the memory of S. Brian Edgar who died on 10th June 2010. The ERE2010 meeting will be held at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC) in Granada, Spain from 6th-10th September 2010.
Brian was a frequent attendee at the ERE meetings in recent years and shared fruitful collaborations with several groups in Iberia and indeed world-wide. Brian was a dedicated teacher and supervisor and a very able and productive researcher. However to many of us, Brian was more than just a colleague, but rather a dear friend.
Further details of the programme may be found on the ERE2010 web-site: http://www.iaa.es/ere2010/website/modules/tinyd0/index.php?id=22
