Siegfried Mattl (1954-2015)
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear friend and collaborator Siegi Mattl, the head of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for History and Society. In the last decades, the Web has also changed how research in the humanities and the social sciences is done. Siegi, who was a progressive and visionary scientist, was aware of this much earlier than many others. Critically reflecting, he actively shaped and designed the research approach in the field humanities. This led to interesting interdisciplinary collaborations, also with our research group. Our last common project, the Vienna Summer School on Digital Humanities, will take place in July this year. Siegi, we will miss you!
