Dear friends and colleagues, it is time to wish everybody a peaceful winter break and a Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas. In time of war, climate and health challenges, it becomes even more important to act joyfully and with engagement for each other and for what we do. For the 2023 my main professional focus will be on the ACM WomENcourage https://womencourage.acm.org/2023/ that we organize in Trondheim 20-22 September 2023 – I hope you write it in your calendar already from now and that you will join us for a friendly and purposeful celebration. For my private life I wish more laughter, reading, swimming and family time. Best wishes to all of you.
