As highly respected leader in standardization, Libor was warm and welcoming and made numerous contributions to HL7 and the larger healthcare informatics community. In the series of International HL7 Interoperability Conferences launched in 2000 in Dresden, Germany, he was the Chair of the Local Organizing Committee of the 2015 event in Prague, bringing together the HL7 Affiliate community. That was the event where the European Strategic Advisory Group was formally established: one important step towards HL7 Europe. Libor Seidl passed away from COVID-19 on 29 March 2021. He was the father of three children.
