Institutional Members

Ram Gnanadesikan (1932 - 2015)

We regret to inform the ISBIS community that Ram Gnanadesikan passed away last Monday, July 6th. Ram was the Chair of the ISI Working Group on Industrial Statistics, formed the original committee in 1989, and led the efforts that resulted in the creation of the full ISI Committee and of course ISBIS. So Ram could be considered the 'founding father' of ISBIS. A special article about him by Jon Kettenring is available in the September issue of ISBIS News.
