A special session of the GISRUK Annual Conference this month celebrated the outstanding achievements of Professor Stan Openshaw who led quantitative research in CURDS for 15 years. Stan then developed computational geography at Leeds University but had to retire in 2000 after suffering a disabling stroke. The conference session attracted key figures in geographic information science who paid tribute to Stan's contributions to the field. The range of Stan's innovative work is illustrated in an Environment & Planning "virtual issue" that was specially compiled to mark this event, timed for Stan's 65th birthday.
