Peter Hall passed away on January 9, 2016 at the age of 64. We are all very saddened by the loss of Peter, who was a great scholar, a mentor, and a friend to many of the ICSA members. With over 600 journal papers, Peter's scholarly achievements and tremendous productivity are well known. His exceptional intelligence was matched by his extensive service to the community and great personal warmth and generosity. Peter was a strong supporter of the ICSA and Chinese statisticians, especially new researchers. He served as the co-editor for Statistica Sinica from 2008 to 2011.
