Professor Stanislaw Penczek — the polymers world and not only
Polimery 2014, No 1, 3
The issue of "Polimery” journal is dedicated to Professor Stanislaw Penczek on the occasion of his 80th birthday.
The Editorial Staff expresses thanks to Prof. Dr. Andrzej Duda and Prof. Dr. Stanislaw Slomkowski for their valuable and substantial assistance in preparation of this issue.
It seems to be easy to write about someone whom one knows for about half of a century. For example, one could prepare a database linked with obtained degrees, promotions, particular achievements, and awards. However, such a presentation would be in some way just a paper construct separated from the real man. Thus, we decided to present our remarks on Professor Stanislaw Penczek, celebrating his 80th birthday, from our personal perspective. Of course, memories may be misleading (a brilliant examplewas shown in Rashomon by Akira Kurosawa), butwe tried to do our best to force our memories to recall past as it was.
