Dear Colleagues,

It is with deep sorrow that I have to inform you about the sudden loss of 
Dr. Siegfried Krause, IT Referent of the Germanische Nationalmuseum of 
Nuremberg and longstanding member of CIDOC and CRM-SIG. He passed away 
this Friday, Nov. 8 2019, in his home in the village Lyttos in Crete, 
suddenly without previous illness, in the middle of an active life, just 
two weeks after participating in the last CRM_SIG meeting in Heraklion.

We have Siegfried Krause in high esteem as a personal friend, a good 
colleague and scholar. He was one of the founding members of the CIDOC CRM 
Special Interest Group. We value his distinct contributions and his deep 
understanding of the practical IT requirements of research in the 
cultural-historical domain. 

His work substantially contributed to the quality and increasing 
application the CIDOC CRM enjoys world-wide. He has translated the CIDOC 
CRM to German, together with late Karl-Heinz Lampe and me. He has 
developed, together with the University of Erlangen, one of the most 
important reference implementations of the CIDOC CRM, the WissKi system, 
probably the first Knowledge Representation platform that is in practice 
used for the integrated management of multiple scholarly research projects 
from the beginning of the research process and continues to be used. 

He was the local organizer of the CIDOC Annual Conference 1997, Nuremberg, 
Germany and has been chair of the Semantic Research Environments Working 
Group of CIDOC, which builds on the experience with the WissKi system. 
Our team at ICS-FORTH has been enjoying a continued and intensive 
scientific collaboration with Siegfried's team since the year 2000.

His sudden passing away constitutes a great loss, personally and 
professionally, an interruption of promising activities, but before all a 
great hardship for his family. 

Siegfried Krause had strong emotional ties to the island of Crete, 
beginning as young archaeologist, and thus happened to end his life in an 
environment he loved.

We offer our sincere condolences to his wife and his family,

Martin Doerr
