Dear Visitor,

the Electronic Vision(s) Group sadly announces the death of its founder and truly respected leader and mentor, Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Meier. He passed away on the 24th of October, after fighting his grave illness bravely for more than two years. A period during which his tremendeous power of will allowed him to keep up with all his duties and his creative power never wavered. His ideas, imagination and deep scientific understanding made our research possible: creating electronic systems for non-Turing information processing following the blueprint of biology. Our progress in this area will be forever linked to his great mind.

We will keep his humanity, friendliness and open-mindedness forever in our hearts.

The memorial service took place on Friday, 16 November 2018 at 12:00h in the Peterskirche, Plöck 70, Heidelberg, Germany. Instead of sending flowers, the family suggested to donate "In memoriam Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Meier" to the German Physical Society, IBAN DE47 3702 0500 0008 0272 00, BIC BFSWDE33XXX.
