It is with great sadness that the IAEA Board of Trustees wishes to announce the death of Ms Sylvia Acana, on 25 October 2012. She was the Principal Examinations Officer at the Uganda National Examinations Board and served on a number of national and international committees, including IAEA. She served as a Trustee on the IAEA Board of Trustees from 2006 until 2011. Her warm personality and her insightful contributions to discussions of the Board and the organisation will be sorely missed.

Hence the theme: Educational Assessment 2.0: Technology in Educational Assessment.
