Professor COPPENS welcomed the delegates and observers. The President began by recalling the sad losses of Professor A. I. HORDVIK (General Secretary and Treasurer) and Professor Yu. T. STRUCHKOV (Vice-President) who had both died in 1995 and who had both contributed so much to the Union. He thanked Professor S. LARSEN who had energetically taken over as General Secretary and Treasurer at very short notice and Dr R. CHIDAMBARAM who had agreed to serve as Vice-President.
