After a short, but intense, “intermezzo” as editor of the CERN Courier, I’m stepping down as I head off to new challenges. I would like to thank the CERN Courier Advisory Board and the many contributors who are the backbone of the magazine. I would also like to thank Lisa Gibson, the production editor at IOP Publishing. Most importantly, I would like to say that the magazine would not be what it is without its faithful readership, whose feedback I have appreciated greatly during these months. I’m sure that they will continue to provide their support to the new editor, Matthew Chalmers. Antonella Del Rosso, CERN.
