[An image of Stan Openshaw]

Tragically, Stan had a stroke in May 1999, and has been unable to return to work. He founded the CCG in 1992 as a group dedicated to bringing computers to bear on complex social and environmental problems and worked tirelessly until his stroke to make it a success. In 1996 he was involved in cementing the GeoComputational community through the initialization of a set of international conferences.

The Stan Openshaw Collection is a collection of Stan's work and office artifacts. This stuff is still being compiled many years after he was retired. Much may be lost via entropy, but in preparation for a Special Session at the GISRUK 2012 conference to celebrate Stan's work and career, our efforts to remember Stan and his work are being redoubled. A Festschrift document has been set up as a Google docs document, to which contributions and comments are most welcome. There is an open Google Scholar Profile for Stan which also relays something about the impact of his work. As a notable individual, Stan also has a Wikipedia Page. As we revisit his work, we hope to put more information on-line...
