Photo Nov 9, 2018: We were shocked to receive the terrible news of the passing of Professor James Stirling. The physics community suffered the great loss of an outstanding scientist, and we, in particular, that of a longtime great friend and supporter. Professor Stirling was one of the star physicists of the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham and its inaugural director as well as the Jacksonian Professor of Natural Philosophy and Head of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He served as the first Provost of the Imperial College in London from 2013-2018. He made crucial contributions in high energy phenomenology, especially in hadronic physics and perturbative QCD, and some of his works are among the most cited of all times in the physical sciences. The Corfu Summer Institute and the European Institute for Sciences and their Applications would like to express their gratitude for Professor's Stirling strong support during all these years, and especially at their first steps in 2003. Our thoughts are with his family and close friends to whom we would like to express our deepest condolences.

Maria was an extraordinary person, a passionate scientist, and a great friend of Corfu community. With her research on the LHC, ILC and CLIC, she has contributed a lot to lively discussions during past Corfu meetings. Her enthusiasm for Higgs physics and photons was particularly very infectious. She will never be forgotten for her sweet personality, her generous and courteous character, for her enthusiasm in physics, and for her support of the young generation of physicists.

Pierre was an outstanding scientific figure of our generation and a leading personality in our scientific community. Pierre was also a very good personal friend of many of us and a great supporter of the Corfu scientific activities, where he served as lecturer and main Workshop speaker.
Photo Aug 30, 2016: Dear friends, I deeply regret to inform you that our beloved friend and colleague Giannis (Ioannis) Bakas passed away on Tuesday, Aug 30. Giannis was an outstanding mathematical physicist, a great academic teacher and a real gentleman and generous person. His scientific work and presence honored the Greek scientific community and we have all been devastated by his sudden loss. We have been informed by his family that the funeral will take place in his hometown Kalamata on Friday, Sep 2 at 5 pm. We express our deepest sympathy to the members of his family. The scientific community lost an excellent scientist and EISA lost its General Secretary, who was one of its main cornerstones. On behalf of the EISA, George Zoupanos.
