Congrats to Eyal on his PhD defense
Eyal Oren successfully defended his PhD at DERI, NUI Galway last week. I'd again like to say well done to Eyal, and since he was such a great person to work with, I know his new colleagues at VU Amsterdam will benefit greatly from his expertise and love of learning.
I first met Eyal when I arrived in DERI in early 2004 and I was talking at lunch about local access to IEEE papers that we'd secured. He had some tips on how to access related resources, and continued to be a source of knowledge that we will now miss in the Institute. The best of luck to you Dr. Oren.
