Gary Bornstein (1953-2012)
It is with great sadness that we let you know that Gary Bornstein passed away on May 29, 2012. Since the 1988 conference in Groningen, Gary attended virtually all International Conferences on Social Dilemmas, and was a major contributor to intellectual exchanges during these meetings. But above all, he consistently gave excellent talks (and with strong conviction) on team games, game theory, or rational decision making. He was gifted with exceptional creativity and precision to develop new (team) games that focus on the crux of intergroup conflict and strategic decision making. His theorizing also provided a new perspective on theories of cooperation across the various disciplines: Cooperating with the ingroup can often have detrimental effects at the level of the collective. He was a great scientist, a committed advisor, and wonderful friend to many colleagues around the world. While being strongly committed to his scientific beliefs and theories (and for excellent reasons), Gary was also able to relax, have a beer, and simply enjoy friendship. We will miss him a lot.

Curt Camac (1958-2012)
Those who attended early conferences on social dilemma will remember Curt Camac. We share the sad news here that Curt passed away on October 6, 2012 at the age of 54. He completed a dissertation at the University of Delaware (under supervision of Mike Kuhlman) and then became Professor at Roanoke College where he worked for 26 years. His research was focused on social value orientation, information seeking, and social dilemmas. He served as Chair at the department for the past seven years. Curt was a dedicated scientist, with a passion for research and teaching, and a man who truly enjoys friendship.
