Note from the Editor
Abstract“Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.”- Samuel Johnson
A year ago, in May 2020, we issued our first COVID lockdown edition during very uncertain times. We were then subjected to lockdown regulations that forced us all to work from home. Now, a year later, we have endured different levels of lockdown, and working from home has become an acceptable norm. Humans are adaptable, and innovation flourishes under these circumstances.
SAIIE is again organizing its annual conference – SAIIE32. This year, it will be at Glenburn Lodge, Muldersdrift, from 4-6 October, and it will hopefully be a physical conference, not the online one of 2020. The theme this year is “Steps, inspiring thinking about where we have come from and where we are going to”. For more details, see www.saiie.co.za. As before, best contributions at this conference will be selected for a special edition of this journal.
This edition has a total of 16 articles, with eight from authors with South African connections and the balance from international authors.
If you have suggestions on how we can take this journal forward, please let me know.
