Issue 5, p. 3 (2015)
This issue number 5 of TOS forum is dedicated to publishing the Proceedings of the 7th World Conference on Sampling and Blending, WCSB7. The process that ends with the publication in your hands (or on your PC/tablet screen) started at the previous WCSB6 (2013, Lima, Chile) when it was realised that the world economic depression would likely mean that sponsorship would be much more difficult to obtain (something that was an under-estimate as the last two years have proved). So, a radically different strategy for the publication of the proceedings was called for. The present Editor offered to shoulder this responsibility, aiming at a dramatically small, but effective production setup (an editorial staff of two, and IM Publications).
