Assistant Professors Stephane Diring and Julien Reboul left the group in the end of October and went back to France for their new CRNS positions. Both of them joined the group in spring/2009 as postdocs in the ERATO Kitagawa project and were promoted to be assistant professor in the iCeMS later. We spent the time of five and a half years together and finally the time of their departure comes… Though it is a big loss in our group, it is now the time to wish their bright futures!! Good luck, Stephane and Julien!!
