Abstract

As many of you know, Sydney Leach died on December 24th 2019, at the age of 95. He was active to the very end. Sydney was a pillar of modern chemical physics and, through his many and lasting contributions, has been a major influence in placing ‘photophysique moléculaire’ squarely on the map of post-war science. Many of us, hearing of the sad news of his death, immediately felt that a meeting to commemorate Sydney’s life-long contribution would be very appropriate. Such a meeting is planned for September 22nd-25th of this year, to take place at Orsay at the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d’Orsay.
