Our colleague Etsuko Itou will move to the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University as an associate professor from April 1st. We all will miss her and wish her the best of luck in her latest endeavor. Here is a message from Etsuko Itou :

I worked at iTHEMS for almost a year as a senior research scientist.
I had the opportunity to discuss researches with people from various backgrounds, go on a short trip to Kawagoe, and give presentations at interdisciplinary research meetings, which was a valuable experience for me.
I would also like to thank my assistants and PR staff for their support!
I will be a visiting scientist of iTHEMS next year. I look forward to working with you again.
