Viktor Nikolaevich Beloozerov (1939-2020)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Viktor Nikolaevich Beloozerov who died in November 2020. Victor was a member of the UDC Advisory Board and worked in the UDC team in VINITI (All-Russian Institute for Scientific and Technical Information of Russian Academy of Sciences).
Victor was an engineer-physicist and linguist with extensive knowledge on a broad range of subjects and had expert knowledge in the field of standardization of scientific terminology and bibliographic classifications. Most recently, he contributed to VINITI's project on mapping classification systems in the domain of scientific and technical information (see here). His contribution and help will be greatly missed by the UDC Editorial Team and by his colleagues in VINITI.
