EPJB - Eduardo Hernandez and Heiko Rieger appointed Editors-in-Chief

The new year sees big changes for EPJ B, with two new Editors-in-Chief appointed from January 2020. Prof Dr Heiko Rieger (Saarland University, Germany) and Prof Eduardo Hernandez (ICMM-CSIC, Spain) take on joint EiC roles, with broad responsibility for papers in statistical physics and condensed matter physics respectively. At the same time, Prof Bikas Chakrabarti (Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, India) and Prof Wenhui Duan (Tsinghua University, China) step down from their roles as Executive Editors on the journal.

Eduardo Hernandez is senior scientist at the Madrid Materials Research Institute (ICMM-CSIC). His research expertise covers the field of atomistic modelling of materials, from empirical potential models to first principles electronic structure, with a particular focus on Molecular Dynamics methods.

Eduardo Hernandez

Heiko Rieger is Professor for Theoretical Physics and member of the Center of Biophysics at the Saarland University, and Speaker of the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1027 on “Physical modeling of non-equilibrium processes in biological systems“. His research interests range from many body physics (classical and quantum) over stochastic processes to theoretical biophysics, with a particular focus on dynamical processes far from equilibrium.

The publishers of EPJB would like to thank Prof Chakrabarti and Prof Duan for all of their work on the journal over recent years, and also to wish Prof Dr Rieger and Prof Hernandez well as they take on their new roles as Editors-in-Chief.

This was our first experience of publishing with EPJ Web of Conferences. We contacted the publisher in the middle of September, just one month prior to the Conference, but everything went through smoothly. We have had published MNPS Proceedings with different publishers in the past, and would like to tell that the EPJ Web of Conferences team was probably the best, very quick, helpful and interactive. Typically, we were getting responses from EPJ Web of Conferences team within less than an hour and have had help at every production stage.
We are very thankful to Solange Guenot, Web of Conferences Publishing Editor, and Isabelle Houlbert, Web of Conferences Production Editor, for their support. These ladies are top-level professionals, who made a great contribution to the success of this issue. We are fully satisfied with the publication of the Conference Proceedings and are looking forward to further cooperation. The publication was very fast, easy and of high quality. My colleagues and I strongly recommend EPJ Web of Conferences to anyone, who is interested in quick high-quality publication of conference proceedings.
